hives falling over
« on: May 06, 2006, 09:09:43 PM »
Hi
I have a few hives on a hillside. The ground is not so stable and the wind really blows sometimes. I have recently had a couple of hives topple over.
Has anyone any slope experience and any simple solutions  I could use for stabilising the hives?

You could build a bench like mine, I am on a steep hillside.

Pick up a few T-bar fence posts and drive them in next to your colonys.  Throw a strap around em
