There are bee hives in a corner of the yard. Although, for the most part they keep to themselves, if you are severely allergic to bee stings we strongly recommend that you take appropriate measures, such as bringing an EpiPen with you. Please do not disturb the hives. They are being cared for by a qualified neighbor.
