I'm moving in the middle of a heat wave. Last time I moved my bees, I made a screened cover and removed the inner and top cover. I also blocked the entrance with screen. Both hives were placed in the back seat of our old beater Volvo that was trailered. The windows were down and I misted them with a spray bottle every time we stopped.
Sound crazy? Maybe. This is what I was told to do by some old-timers (the screen and the mist).
This time, the two hives will be in the same car. The trip should last two days and be in very hot weather. Will this technique work again? Am I crazy to travel during the heat of the day?
Thanks in advance!
