Keep Yo Bees Offen Mah Trees!

An interesting dispute. Do bees trespass? Are tangerine blossoms an attractive nuisance?

For some background, my article on the economics of the apiary.

Some questions:

1. Can the Courts settle this?
2. What would Coase say?


(Nod to Tom, who is himself an attractive nuisance)

(UPDATE: Thanks to the General, for pointing out I don't cut and paste well with the other children)

1. of course, courts can settle ANYTHING!!

2. Coase would say "I never said transactions costs actually were zero"!!!
