Ok

I will try this again. Here is the pic of the stand I made for ant moat.


Can somebody tell me where I can find a foundation tree?

Billybee;

Don't think you have enough time/posts to post pictures yet, it's kind of a trial period to be sure there is no bad stuff posted.

Ask one of the moderaters to post your pictures, one of them should ok you.

I have to say BillyBee that is pretty slick and a bunch cheaper than the one I built. My concern would be if it gets a few boxes on top and heavy will it be stable? I tried to post a pic some time back but had the same problem you did. Not enough post yet.

Picked up a couple of rolls of outdoor furniture fabric at a yard sale that is 6ft wide, rot proof, and UV resistant.  Its tougher than the rolls of weed block sold in lawn care stores.  Roll it out, lay down two PT 4x4's, and your done.  Been using it for ten years around the farm here and the first I put down still looks great.  :)  :bee:

Hive Stand with pest moat. I am very happy that I built these as I got started. The cost is more to start a hive but nothing but bees in the boxes. I guess it would be impractical to do this at a large scale like someone adding many at one time, but for the person that is slowly adding to the apiary like me, it is great. I though about leaving the mouse guards off this winter because I do not think they are needed. I do not plan to move them of coarse like some do. The boxes can be secured with a strap to the stand.
