Urban Beekeeping For Beginners

16 Avr 2016 
Beekeeping in the City

Beekeeping in an urban area is possible. As interest in beekeeping has grown, cities and towns across the United States, most noticeably New York City, are dropping old ordinances restricting beekeeping and passing new ordinances to make it possible. If you have always wanted to be a beekeeper, but thought that you couldnt, because you live in town, think again. With a few special considerations, beekeeping can definitely be in your future.

Can Bees Survive in a City?

Not only can bees survive in an urban environment, they can thrive. From talking to other beekeepers, it seems that bees in urban areas often outperform their rural cousins when it comes to honey production, perhaps because many landscaping plants in urban and suburban yards are good nectar sources for honeybees.

Zoning Ordinances and Beekeeping

The first step for any aspiring urban beekeeper is to check your local zoning code for regulations pertaining to honeybees. Most municipalities have their zoning code online. Zoning codes can be complicated to read. One section refers to a table, which refers to another table, which refers to a list of definitions. After five minutes of wading through the confusion, you are going to be tempted to pick up the telephone and call your local Department of Planning and Zoning and ask what the regulations are pertaining to beekeeping. Dont.

Before I was a commercial beekeeper, I was a commercial real estate broker and I spent a considerable amount of time reading zoning ordinances and talking to zoning officials. What I learned is that most zoning codes are so complex that even the zoning officials get confused about what they say. Also, beekeeping is not something that they get asked about every day. They dont have time to look it up, it sounds vaguely like something that might not be permitted, and therefore, it must be illegal. Trust me on this one. Take the time to dig through the zoning code yourself and figure out what it says.

You may find that keeping bees is not mentioned in the zoning code at all, which I would understand as a green light. Remember, sometimes it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. Some of the newer ordinances being passed around the U.S. have specific guidelines that need to be followed, such as the number of colonies allowed and the distance that they must be from a property line, if beekeeping is specifically allowed, so much the better.

Should I Ask the Neighbors If Its Ok to Get Bees?

This is a tough one. Well, ethically speaking, its not that tough, of course you should ask your neighbors, but this assumes that they are rational people. Many people have a completely irrational fear of bees. Most of these people know very little about honey bees and cant distinguish a honey bee from a yellow jacket, or a bumble bee. Unfortunately, it is difficult to combat irrational fear with reason and fact. Whether you decide to ask your pre hacked games neighbors, or not, the best approach is to keep the beehives hidden and your beekeeping activities low key.

Liability Issues and Beekeepers

I am a commercial beekeeper, I keep my bees in a rural environment, and I have a commercial liability insurance policy specifically for beekeepers. However, I have kept bees in a suburban environment, at my own home, and I admit that I never once checked my homeowners insurance policy to see if there were any special stipulations regarding bees. It would be worth checking.

Recently, several states have passed laws that protect beekeepers from liability lawsuits. I helped work on the passage of beekeeper liability legislation in one state. Our research indicated that the threat of liability lawsuits was more imagined than real, but exempting beekeepers from liability is something that states can do to help promote beekeeping and recognizes that the presence of honey bees benefits the public and is not a threat to public health.

Some states, like West Virginia, require that a beekeeper follow a set of best practices in order to qualify for the liability exemption. Other states, like Tennessee, simply exempt beekeepers from liability, except in the case of gross negligence. Check with your state Department of Agriculture to find out what laws are in place and what, if anything, is required in your state.

How Much Room Do I Need To Raise Bees?

You dont need a certain amount of room to keep bees, other than a place to set the actual hive. The bees are going to range out for a couple of miles in every direction. What you need is a quiet area where the hive, or hives will be unobtrusive. Remember out of sight, out of mind.

Hive Location and Bee Flight Paths

Rather than thinking in terms of a certain amount of area, think in terms of flight paths. The entrance to a beehive can be a busy place as foraging bees take off and land. This activity can extend out from the hive for several yards, just a few feet from the ground, as bees leaving the hive gain altitude and the returning bees descend.

You will need to orient the hive entrance so that bees wont be bumping into pedestrians and neighbors. Also, having a tall fence, or hedge, in front of the hive will force the bees up and over peoples heads. Once the bees are up, they tend to stay up.

Protect the Curious From the Bees and the Bees From the Curious

The site of a beehive can draw attention, some if it negative. Some people take perverse delight in molesting bees. Kids, in particular, seem to love to throw rocks at beehives. While beehives are traditionally painted white, they dont have to be. Paint your beehives any light, neutral color that blends in with the background. Its not a bad idea to keep them inside a fenced area.

1. Water and Bees

This probably causes more problems with neighbors than anything else. It is very important that you provide your bees with a constant source of water. A bee colony needs water to survive. If you dont provide it for them, they are going to get it somewhere else, like your neighbors pool, bird bath, or dripping garden hose.

Just about any kind of container that will hold water will work as a bee waterer. Place sticks, or other floats in the water so that the bees have something on which to land and dont drown. Dont let your bees run out of water, especially in dry weather.

2. Swarm Control

Swarming is the method by which a colony of bees reproduces itself. Every beekeeper needs to practice some form of swarm control, but it is particularly important for the urban beekeeper. As every beekeeper knows, swarms, having no hive to defend, are quite gentle and pose no real threat to anyone. However, to the non-beekeeper, several thousand bees clustered on their mail box looks like a dark cloud of death.

No swarm control method works one hundred percent of the time. Sometimes your bees will swarm, despite your best efforts. Approximately half the bees and the old queen will leave the hive and land somewhere nearby in a big cluster, while scout bees range out looking for a new home. This is when your terrified neighbor will call. Be responsive. Drop whatever you are doing and go catch those bees. If you cant get there immediately, call a beekeeping buddy who can. There are always beekeepers around who will be happy to go get some free bees. Most bee clubs keep a swarm list of beekeepers who want to catch swarms. The important thing is that your neighbors will recognize that you will take care of any bee related problems that come up.

3. Be Strategic About When You Open the Hive

The best time to work a beehive is in the middle of a warm, sunny day. A large percentage of the colony will be outside the hive, foraging. They will be less defensive, and fewer bees will get in the air around you. Fewer bees in the air means less chance of disturbing neighbors. If your hives are near a property line, dont work your bees while your neighbors are outside.

4. Use Smoke

Smoke has an amazing ability to calm bees, probably because it covers up the alarm pheromone, but a lot of new beekeepers hesitate to smoke their bees. Its not going to hurt them. Smoke is the beekeepers best friend.

5. Keep Gentle Bees and Mark Your Queen

Some strains of bees are more defensive than others. If a hive shows signs of being particularly defensive, re-queen it.

A queen is marked by putting a little dab of paint on her thorax, usually with a paint pen. Mark your queen so that you know the origin of the queen in the hive. This is particularly important for those who live in areas where the more defensive Africanized honey bees are present. It is important to note that the best line of defense against Africanized honey bees is lots of colonies of European honey bees.

6. Share the Honey

Nothing helps neighbor relations more than sharing an occasional jar of honey. Giving away a few jars every year will build goodwill and help people see your bees in a favorable light.

Rooftop Beekeeping

I have never kept bees on a rooftop, but I think that it could be a great place. I would place the colonies near the edge of the roof with the entrance facing out. In northern climates, during winter, special provisions might need to be made for wind breaks.

A rooftop beekeeper will need to be especially careful not to carry bees into the building. Often after working a hive, there will be a few stray bees hitching a ride on the beekeeper. Careful use of a bee brush and removing bee clothes before entering the building will keep the bees out of the elevator, or stairwell.

Become an Urban Beekeeper

Urban beekeeping is a great way to connect with nature without leaving the city. By carefully considering a few things like flight paths and following a few simple best practices, the urban beekeeper can keep both the bees and the neighbors happy and enjoy a wonderful hobby.

Legit Work-from-Home Websites - and the Scams

13 Avr 2016 
NEW YORK -- Some work-at-home websites can actually work for you, while others are just scams that will work for -- the fraud artists behind them, while costing you money.

That's the bottom line from AOL Consumer Adviser Regina Lewis. The trick is knowing the difference.

Working online from home is increasingly popular in this economy. But beware! Some offer legitimate opportunities, while others should be avoided. Scammers often take out ads promising big bucks for working at home. Much of the time, says Lewis, the come-ons are lies.

On "The Early Show" Friday, Lewis showcased some sites you may not know about that could bring in some dough. She told where to look, the do's and don'ts, and how much you can reasonably expect to make. Plus, she had some important "red flags" to watch for.


Search for Answers Online:

We've all done our share of Googling - and now you can actually get paid to search for answers for users (Become a guide: click here) You can apply to be one of the people who decides what search results pop up when someone types in, phones in or texts an inquiry on a topic you're passionate about -- anything from God to Guitars and from Diabetes to Decorating. There are currently 62,000 ChaCha guides nationwide. It's an attractive part-time gig for night owls in particular, as well as college students and retirees. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection to apply to become a guide.

Fair warning: Not everyone can be a guide. There are entrance tests and limited opportunities. If you're lucky enough to be one of the 10 percent of applicants accepted, you'll go to "Search University" and then quickly be on your way to earning points for each search or task you complete. Points convert into cash at end of month. While this is not designed to be a primary revenue source, ChaCha tells us most guides make a few hundred dollars per month.

Virtual Concierge or Customer Service Rep.

Become a virtual concierge or customer service representative helping people plan travel, find home improvement contractors, etc. The job can be done from home, anywhere in the country, at set hours for generally $10-12 an hour. This is growing trend in this economic climate. In fact, VIP Desk tells us they're recruiting now with plans to add hundreds more people to their network with a mix of independent contracting and part- and full-time opportunities. It is competitive, but fantastic work for people who live in remote locations or who are juggling child- or elder-care responsibilities.

Approximately half of their Brand Ambassadors are bilingual, so if you speak multiple languages, you may really have a leg up. When you sign up, you get a schedule weekly or biweekly with your assignments. The work varies by season, since many retail clients -- including Eddie Bauer and Bluefly -- use VIPDesk to field customer service calls. Right now, ServiceMagic is gearing up for all the people who will be looking for Spring cleaning and home improvement efforts. They generate leads for contractors, plumbers and the like. Rather than taking the calls directly, while they're out on a job, VIP Desk customer service reps serve as their frontline.

Find Freelance Work Online

This site is the new way to work for many small businesses with fewer than 500 employees. Monthly hiring is up roughly 40 percent year-over-year. They're not looking to hire someone in two weeks or two months -- odds are, they needs someone N-O-W. There have been over 35,000 jobs posted to the site in the past 30 days - everything from building Facebook apps to ghostwriting books, developing marketing materials, graphic design work and writing executive bios.

How it works: You submit a proposal for the work, get hired and agree upon terms and milestones. At the end, you submit your invoice and funds are released from escrow. This is key, because one of the things freelancers and e-lancers struggle with is getting paid and getting paid expeditiously. So the fact that eLance provides a tool to facilitate this and that the project is funded up-front is significant benefit.

As freelancing has traditionally been, e-lancing is great way to get a foot in door and build a reputation. You'll be rated on your work (much like eBay's rating system for sellers). The more positive your rating, the more likely work is to come your way. Over time, some e-lancers pair up with other highly-rated e-lancers and bid on bigger, more profitable pieces of business. So, you may start by going it alone and end up joining others and earning a piece of a potentially bigger pie.


Be Tech-Ready

First, walk before you run. Make sure you have high-speed access, don't have a love/hate relationship with your laptop, and your printer isn't about to run out of ink. A dedicated space and phone line is also high priority for your working area.

Know Your Price

Don't price yourself right out of a job. Just as you might compare prices on eBay before making a bid on a job, make sure you know what the going rate is for the work you're qualified to do. And, remember, players with established track records can probably charge more, so you may need to undercut them on price when you're first getting started.


Success breeds success. Once you get your foot in the virtual door -- deliver. That goes without saying. So, to take it a step further -- over-deliver to ensure a high rating and reputation. That will bring more opportunities your way, not to mention the ability to charge higher rates.


Scam artists often prey on those looking to make a quick buck working from home. There is a fair amount of fraud in this arena. Two of the biggest "red flags" to be on the lookout for are:

Requests for Cash

Never pay for the privilege of working for an employer. Be suspicious of opportunities that require you to pay for things up front, such as supplies, sales kits and other materials. And never pay a fee to find out about job openings.

Giving up Too Much Personal Information

Be wary of having to hand over a lot of personal and financial information up-front, which might be a tipoff to an identity theft scam. Never give your Social Security number or banking information to anyone unless you know and trust them.
