Resident Beehives, indoor bees? Answered
I was watching an episode of "how it's made", they were covering commercial tomato's. The plants were grown in a large building and the plants were pollinated by a in house beehive. The hive was kept separate from the plants, but the bee's had access through some tubing and a hole in the wall. Everything I've read suggests that having bee's pollinate your indoor plants is a bad idea. I'm pretty sure most of these comments are coming from hobbyists, but the claim is that the bees get lost indoors and usually die as a result. Can anyone enlighten me on the subject?
