With all of the wild weather we’re experiencing here, and hearing about from customers in other parts of the world, it’s raised the question “how do you prepare your hive for wild weather?”
In particular I’d love to hear from beekeepers in very different climates to ours, such as those who deal with hurricanes. How do you secure your hive adequately without splitting the timber? When we had a bit of wild weather here, a ratchet strap was sufficient for my hive, but I’m not sure this would withstand a hurricane/tornado! …Thoughts?
