Hello everyone and Happy New Year!!!!!!!
On New Years Eve we had a bad wind storm with gusts up to 60 MPH. A we had few trees that went down but the worst news was that I had 8 Bee hives that were all on a long platform. As the wind blew it put pressure on the tops of the hives and forced them all to work to together to fall over. I came home from work around 4:30 P.M. and discovered the tragedy.
The bees were huddled together in their own hives but it looked like they were shivering. I was able to quickly put them on cinder blocks. My question is will they be okay or are these 8 doomed in 2008? I am not sure how many will make it. It was really cold and I am assuming they had been exposed to the elements for up to 8 hours.
