    Thermometer gun is a good ideal. I'll give that a shot to gather intel.

    My hives looked good with no signs of swarming.

    Re: My Ant Proof Hive Stand Actually Works!

    If there is enough wind to shear lag bolts sideways through 4x4's, I won't be worrying about beehives.
    My house would be blown away and I would have more pressing matters to be concerned with.

    The ants were not able to make it past the grease under the...

    All 4x4 construction.
    and I added two more 4x4's to the horizontal base to give the bottom boards more purchase (not pictured).

    4x4's and they are set 4 foot into the ground with concrete.
    The hives are secured by looping around 10" lag bolts.

    I did go back and add 2 more 4x4's for more stability around the bottom boards, but it is set deep with concrete.
    It ain't going to tip.

    Re: Bradford pear trees

    My bees are all over them when they come into bloom.
    The BP is usually the first trees to bloom in my area.
    But as a tree, they suck.
    I don't like them.
