Yeah exactly.

They weren’t keeping wasp/hornet hives. They are bees. I’ve been stung about 15 times in my life, never been bothered by a bee.

The homeowner is clearly not bright having so many but some of these replies show much schooling is needed on the majestic bee. They're not hornets or wasps people. Bees serve an essential service as they pollinate a huge portion of our food crops.

Bees aren't going to sting you either. Only when attacked. Again, they aren't hornets or wasps.

Only when attacked is kind of relative. I don't think I've ever actually been stung by a bee (as opposed to the many times I've been stung by wasps), but when there are that many of them originating from the yard 20' away, you're bound to accidentally "attack" just by mowing over a dandelion or trimming your hedge or working in your garden.

It is downright insane to have that many hives in a residential area, and that guy should be forced to remove them immediately.

My neighbor two houses down has a small colony. I never feel like I can't use my yard, the bees don't come near us. I might feel differently if I had a child with an allergy, but in the years he's had it we haven't had any problems. He gives jars of honey to all of us in the vicinity every year. Really helps our veggie gardens too and yes, not many wasps. That said, he's got a small colony. I'd imagine it would be different if it was much bigger.

On the topic of bugs, the damn mosquitoes are already out this year. We've had approximately 2 nice weeks and the ####ers are already swarming me on the golf course.

Dang 60 hives?!

I know of a handful of urban beehives around the city, the Shaw building in Eau Claire even has two hives on one of their rooftops. Working next door I'd say they're a non-issue... we only see the hives from looking down from our office, on the street there's no way to know about them.

But 60 in a residential yard? That's a lot of bees.

You say that, but there's no such thing as killer wasps/hornets. There are killer bees however.

checkmate!

Also, I've been stung by a bee twice whilst minding my own damn business, so I don't believe you.

I like bees. Mosquitoes on the other hand...

Bill Hicks used to say humanity should stop war, feed the poor, and unite to explore space together. I like to say humanity should stop war, feed the poor, and unite to destroy every single living mosquito.

Reading through the bee act. It looks like you need to be a registered bee keeper to keep bees and you have to keep documentation on where you bought your bees. You also need to have disease free bees and make sure your bees have not been Africanized but it doesnít appear anywhere in the bee act that there is a limit to the number of Hives.

There is a plan Iím the Florida keys to release mosquitos that have genes that will see tulips the mosquito populations. Not sure if they ever got approved.

It looks like in the future we’ll need a lay-by every few blocks so people can find a place to pullover and deal with their Tinder swiping, respond to their mother’s text messages, and get on the Google maps and figure out where the heck you’re going.

Every 20 minutes someone pulls up in front of my house and sits on their phone for 5-10 minutes before pulling away. All day, every day. Wild.
