That's the thing with town bees isn't it Eco. There is always something flowering and the bees just keep on bringing the pollen and nectar home to daddy.  grin

Me and the bee club reckoned educating people was the way to go, instead of writing an informative letter to the council, especially now that I have "vague permission" to keep bees in town.  So I got the application form for the community day stall, and also checked to see whether we could have an obs hive there.  The group running the day took it to a meeting of course, and had a heated debate.  Apparently it is a high risk activity, and their members have severe reactions to bee stings, so naturally the request was denied.  I am guessing it is too late for educating!  It feels like having an animal farm without the animals.  I'm not sure if we will go ahead or not.

I guess you told them it was sealed and no bees would be coming and going?

I been told by a number of people that they are allergic to bees, but when I ask when or how many times they've had a bee sting, their answer is always never been stung or if they have the area around the sting site swelled up and it was very painful...well, deeerrr, that's what a bee sting does, it doesn't mean that you're allergic. My sister in law claims to be allergic and the way she describes it, if a bee flies within 20 feet of her, she's dead!
Ignorance is a powerful, negative force isn't it???  huh huh huh

I just don't think there is an answer to that sort of wrong logic.  I might be allergic to wild lions, but I still know they can't hurt me if they are in a locked cage.

Perhaps it wasn't obvious to the panel that the observation hive is self contained.
