    I have a right away that a road is going in about 2 weeks . I just started a packaged hive that's about 30 -40 feet from it . Will the noise effect them any ? Thanks

    Yes, not enough to amount to anything unless they are Africanized, or the workers start vandalizing the hives.

    the vibration of the earth packers can make them irritable so pick you time to go into them wisely Like sunday afternoon once they have had a day to settle down a day. not at 5 Pm. after they have been shook all day.

    I figured they become little hostile after all that noise . Thanks for the tips . Hopefully the road crew won't take long making this road
