Ziegler Beekeeping and Honey Supply

Some hives moved...

Large storm last night cooled down the area and kept the bees confined to the hive most of the day. By the time I got home from work the sun was shining which meant the hives were flying about. I waited until dark and stapled some screen over the entrances, screwed hives bodies together with scrap lumber, and ratchet strapped whatever I could for good measure.

hTBH and Warre#1 were simply to heavy for me to move, so focused on Warre#2, Nuc#1 and Nuc#2. I leveled a spot at the new property for the hives, and moved them over successfully.

The weather is supposed to be rainy the next couple days.
