My apiary has expanded too much for my suburban yard. Last evening I took two of my overwintered purvis hives and moved them to a friends house. They were a deep and a medium. They were extremely heavy(note to self, move two weeks earlier next year). They are begining to make surplus honey and were very full. W/o expensive equipment, how do you guys move heavy hives from location to location? I also moved them at night, so seprating into pices was not an option this time.
You should have called me, I have one of those hive carriers ( 2 man operational ) from Brushy. Now I'll be buggin' you to help me move mine cause all my local friends are non-beeks ( spineless people with fear of insects ), even my brother will not go near bees
I have straps and BIG staples to do the job.
