Should I agree to placement of an urban apiary on your property, you will be entitled to 20% of all honey harvested if you live within 10km radius of Blairgowrie, Randburg and 10% if you live outside that area. The difference is related to transport and time costs in managing the apiary.
Do not consider placing a hive on your property should you use insecticides in your garden or farm. Depending on the location of an apiary, a beekeeper may have to consider whether or not a farmer or his neighbours is likely to spray crops with something harmful to bees. Therefore, this should be a question that is asked of any farmer or land owner who allows hives to be placed on his/her land. You should ask them to call you a week or so before they begin to spray so that the hives can moved to another location.
