As my hobby has grown this year (first year keeper) and I now have two hives, I was wondering where it is that people have their apiaries located. I live in a very urban area in Portland, OR filled with young families and small children. And while my bees have yet to sting anyone but me, I do have the occasional concern run through my head of if/when one of my neighbor children (or my own) gets their first sting. It has made me consider other places to house my hives, but one of the major advantages of the hobby is being able to walk out my back door and work the hives.
Do most people have their operation in an urban backyards? Hidden rural apiary? Rooftop in the city?
