If you have a big garden then all should be well, the following comments were made by myself on the beekeeping forum in response to some rather wooly thinking about having hives in a small suburban situation.
If a hive goes berserk in a garden and it can and does happen do you yes you want to be responsible for your neighbour getting severely stung, and their pet dog stung to death?
Now have a damn good think about that one because it has happened to me.
On a good day I reckon I know a bit about bees, and it went totally pear shaped out the blue.
Your call, just remember what can happen can be VERY serious, and it’s you who will be in court.
