This may seem like a simple question but I've never seen it addressed anywhere. Ideally, how far away can you place water for the bees? I have a large water trough for our horse. It will be about 200 yards away from where I plan to position the hives. Is that too far away for them? I also wanted to know how important dappled light was? To be closer to the horse trough, I could bring the hives up closer but they will not have any shade. They will be exposed to pretty much direct sun except for a fence.
