Backyard bees in strathmore

Unread post by Mark » August 28th, 2015, 7:20 am

I was excited to get my course and Start a tbh system ,but to my surprise the towns bylaws don't allow for bees in town limits.guess I'll just have to get a place to put the outside town.
If there are anyone would be willing to take me around their hives for a little education it would much appreciated.thanks mark

Welcome to honeybeeworld.com and sorry to hear about those bylaws Mark. If you're interested I have a bunch of mini tbh swarm traps to give away. If you don't want to trap swarms you could use the multitude of top bars for your tbh's. If someone doesn't want them before winter I'm just going to use them to heat my shop.

Ok I won't burn them then they will be here and I still have a handful set out that I'll round up for you. PM me through this site when you're ready.

Hi Mark, just started up my own hive here in Alberta (though the hive is by Chestermere). I was curious about Strathmore's bylaws in regards to backyard bees - I know Chestermere was the same, but with people advocating for and supporting a change in their bylaws they are in the process of changing. Maybe Strathmore can be the same?
