    It's an old abandoned orchard.
    Iddee, do you think the way I have them arched like that will cause too many problems? I usually put them in a straight line but I think someone bush hogs in between the rows once and they would have extended into that space. They are all facing south, southeast. There is bear on the south mountain (not real common though) so I may have to look into electric fence.

    Perry, do you leave the tie straps on permanently or is it only a "remnant" of the moving process?

    I don't see any problem with it. I was just laughing at the flight paths crossing. Pretty country. Is that a water hole in the foreground of the pic?

    Efmesch - We dropped the hives and left them as seen, it was very late and Adam didn't even start the 1 hour ride home till after midnite (when he thought he might already be home)
    I went back yesterday and levelled everything up, removed the straps and opened up the upper entrances.

    Iddee - Now you've got me thinking about the flight paths crossing, I'll keep an eye on things and if I notice a problem I'll move them a bit. That isn't a water hole, just a part of the tall grass I didn't clear. A river is only a few 100 yards away. Bad area for ticks though, hauled one off everytime I go there. :???:
