I am waiting on collecting a swarm for the hive, so I haven't done anything.
Honestly I think that either way is fine. I don't know what I will do but suspect I'll go with letting it alone. Where this hive will be mounted I could latch it down to the shelf it will be set on, but I prolly care more about how the hive looks sitting in my tiny back yard. Were I mounting it up on the roof I would be strapping it, because of winds.
