Well it's in the 40's this weekend and I'm finally going to move my hive's out back.
They'll have full sun back there and I can add more hive's there too.
This is the plan.....
Set up a new stand out back.
Duct tape the entrance.
Lift my cherry-picker into the back of my pick-up, and lash it down to the bed so it can't tip.
Remove the tailgate, extend the boom, put 2 ratchet straps around the hives.
Back up to the hive, pick it up by the ratchet straps, tie it off to the back of the truck so it can't swing around.
Slowly move them to the new location...which is about a pitching wedge away (100 yards).....
I'm not sure if I should put a branch in the front like MB suggests or not since it's still winter here!
My guess is that it's not necessary.
Any suggestion's would be great!
