Welcome to the forum. Im just down the road from you. South of wichita. But was born and raised in Ottawa. Hope to see you back and become an active part of the forum. Products of the hive has a mead recipe post going on right now. Check it out.
One of our members on the forum is living in olathe. You might send them a pm. The user name is srvtexasflood. She can give you the info you need regarding bees in olathe. I do know a guy that was keeping 4 hive out on east santa fe just east of walmart with no problems
Welcome backyardcovey. I sent you a reply. Glad to hear you know about our local bee club. Double check the next meeting date. It's July 11, not June 11. Sorry that you just missed the big annual education day, aka Funday.
Does the subdivision you live in have rules about keeping bees? Do you have privacy fencing?
