    Mine stay tied down,too many times wicked bursts of wind from storms(mainly in the summer)have come off the field behind the hives.

    I'll let them know, but they seem to be the gad-about types. They're not going to like it.

    Cracker, why do you have the little pieces of wood on the top of each one, under the ratchet strap?

    Thanks Tec,I had to add some U.S.F. Bull colors in there to keep the peace because I'm the only "Gator" fan in the house,so I had to add a little green in there,they still want some gold paint :lol:


    Omie those pieces of wood are to cover the holes for the jar feeders when I'm not feeding to keep the rain out

    Nice hives Crackerbee! My Dad and Grandfather would agree with the orange and blue. So where is the storm? I could have made hives for next year.

    That's not a stack of bee equipment Tec,that's two hives I keep separate from the others because they're still a little weak and I've had a robbing problem from my other hives.One is a swarm I caught from my hives last month,and the other is a cutout Rib Bones and I did.I have another that's painted I need to switch with the other that I didn't have time to do when I caught the swarm.
    The rest is automotive lift packing I threw over the fence that my lazy butt hasn't put it on the burn pile yet.
