Hurricane Irene, or at least her high winds, are headed our way. What is done to secure bee hives? Each hive consists of two brood boxes (deeps) and just one honey super. (shallow)
I have been neglectful...actually just really busy with work...and have not checked the honey supers, but I suspect they are near full, so the hive may be getting top heavy.
Does it make any kind of sense to check the honey supers tomorrow and remove them if they are filled or near so?
Close the tops, which are cracked open for air circulation?
weigh down and secure the hives with hopes they won't get blown over? Best way to secure?
And, indulging my worrywart side, what happens if they get blown over, besides having a bunch of really po'd bees buzzing around on Monday? What will I do?
