Well, on December 22 I learned of a fault in a top bar hive I'd never concidered. A group of raccoons had ripped the bottom screening right off and devoured the whole hive. All the combs had been ripped out and, outside of the initial area of the hive, dragged for about 20 feet into palmetto. There was also a recently dead raccoon nearby. This TBH itself is about 5 feet long, and 22 inches wide at the top. IT's 8 inches wide at the bottom and has a depth of about 10 inches. It was placed upon two cinderblocks stacked at each side. I"m wondering if anyone has any idea for what modifications I can make to this hive body or, it's placement to help prevent another occurance such as this. And, given the area can be floodprone and, I don't have the largest budget being a hobbyist, electric fences are out of the question. Thankyou.
