Got an 7' section of a tree to move containing a large colony.
Our summer dearth is about to start and I don't want to do a cutout or trap out on the tree which is being cut down. My hope is just to transport the tree section out to one of my remote bee yards and set it out there and next spring I'll do a trap out on it.
Problem is I can't see how to transport, unload, or attach a wide base to the bottom of, the tree section without laying it completely over.
Is transporting a hive/log on it's side in 90 degree weather going to just create one huge mess of broken comb, spilled honey, and dead bees inside the log?
