I currently have my hive up against the south side of my detached garage, where it stays fairly sheltered during the summer because of the trees.
My home insurance is requiring me to remove the moss growth on my garage roof, and after speaking with a few washers, they use a sodium hydrochloride (bleach) mixture to kill the growth and prevent it from returning.
I worry about the affect the bleach will have on my hive, either the direct spray which is then rinsed off, the overspray getting on the hive, or the residual affect as the moss dies off and is washed away by rain.
Can I drape a tarp or something over the hive during the washing process itself? Is there a safe and effective way to move my hive?
