An apiary in Harju County, Estonia
Having information about locations of apiaries is important for several reasons, incl for the safety of humans (to avoid stinging) and also of bees (to avoid pesticide usage near apiaries).
There are millions of apiaries worldwide of which only a few are mapped at OSM. Seems like it's not clear enough for mappers, which tags should be used to describe an apiary (see "Tags currently in use").
For insect/bee hotels go to: Tag:man_made=insect_hotel
|| If an area is smaller than 5 m by 5 m, it would not be mapped as an area, but as a node.
|| Number of beehives.
|| Beekeeper's name.
|| Beehives are located seasonally (migratory beekeeping).
|| Beehives are kept within the building.
