Asked February 11, 2017, 11:21 AM EST

I would like to try beekeeping in my backyard, a .6 acre in the middle of suburbia (21801). Do I attach the beehive to a tree? Is it better to have two hives? Where do I get bees suited to Eastern Shore Maryland? And when it comes time to harvest honey what do I do? Take the panels to an existing facility? And last question for now :-)) should I fence the backyard to keep the bees & neighbors safe?
