Third Party Fire Damage
In our experience most rural fires involving apiarists are caused by smokers and grass fires. If the fire gets out of control, as well as damaging your own property, this could spread to neighbouring properties causing substantial damage to them. If you are found liable for this, you could be held responsible for the cost of all the neighbour’s associated property damage. When using a smoker you must adhere to any fire bans or permit requirements and have a knapsack sprayer full of water on hand to extinguish any fire.
