I am trying to evaluate the risks involved in a compensation scheme. In order to get some basis for calculations, it would really help me if people could answer this poll:

Lots and lots
difficult to answer. I have as many sites on a farm as I like and have set up sites at different ends which is a kilometer apart.

is this one, because it is one farm?

also have access to other farms.... my potential sites currently outweight hives!

Hi Peteinwilts, I think actual sites that you are using - the two on one farm count as two. potential sites don't count.

Thanks, Roche

several
5 sites - but 6 if you include the school roof which is the best site of them all.

3 sites, but would advise quality over quantity.

Access, distance and protection from prying eyes are all big considerations i think.
