    Should honey bees be allowed within city limits?

    Some cities, such as Minneapolis, are now allowing people living there to be beekeepers.  Based upon what you know about honey bees, what is your opinion?

    Why not?  Honey is food and bees aren't a threat to really harm people unless you are allergic to them.

    Surely in these eco carbon footprint reducing & planet friendly times, bees should be encouraged to live where ever it is possible for them to source enough food etc, we have them on city roofs in London, Manchester etc..
    Saw a documentary on it. Most impressive, hardly anyone knew they where there.
    Its not like they present a threat or a danger to many, except those with an allergy, and they would do a great service to the plant community, fertilising all those flowers.
    Yes I am all for it,
    Honey is great stuff & can be used for many things in the grand scheme of things, medicinal, food its a good source for local pollen allergys, which can only be provided from local honey...& best of all its natural, so yes let the bees live in the city limits....

    They will gravitate to their food source.

    Is the  city going to write them a ciatation, and expect that they pay a fine?

    If you have a well maintained bee hive.......bees are not suddenly going to "attack" someone two blocks away.

    Stop trying to regulate  nature, and our food sources.
