IS THERE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF SPACE NEEDED TO PLACE BEE HIVES OR TO CREATE A SMALL APIARY ( A GROUP OF BEEHIVES WITHIN A GARDEN) ?
You do not need a large amount of space for bee hives as long as they have their resources to thrive you can place a hive just about any where.
The hive simply needs the space to place the equipment , and enough room for you to work around the hive. This applies to multiple hives in an apiary as well.
HOW MANY HIVES SHOULD I OR MY ORGANIZATION START WITH?
Its based on your comfortability level. We suggest if your a school and/or corporation at least two hives. if you are a farm and/ or restaurant at least one hive. this will help ensure honey bees success each year
