I want the hive entrance to point parallel to the line, but in the direction of the fence. I live in an urban area and don't want to point the entrance at neighbors or into my yard (where they can veer into neighbors' yards.) I want them to go up and over the fence and alley, above people level.
So, aligning the hive entrance parallel to the laundry lines, the bees won't fly out aimed at the laundry, but I imagine there'll be some buzzing around in the area of the hive and don't want my laundry spotted up. If I hung the laundry back 10' behind from the hive, would that do?
And, does bee poop stain the laundry--or will it wash out easily?
Inquiring minds want to know.
