From past interactions I have had with the neighbour, I suspect their/her concern is that bees are dangerous and they will rip down the front door in the middle of the night and attack them in their beds. Unfortunately she is a bit of a drama queen.

The good neighbours get some honey.

Sounds like a good site. Are they just river red gums down there?


Sounds like she has been watching too much of "Secret life of the Bees" it's an interesting misconception a lot of people have... i think the hype about the 'african killer bee' got a lot of people on edge.

Yeah, it is predominantly River Red Gum - having a look at the buds on the trees there is going to be some serious nectar for them to feed off this coming season

What else is there around there apart from the red gums? I know there are some market gardens, anything else?
