I just got my bees today. What an experience - I dropped them in place just before a wind storm. They're too busy sheltering to worry about being annoyed at a 2 hour drive.
Anyway, I told my supplier something I did and he thought it was a good idea, so I'm sharing it here.
I went to the hardware store and bought a dog kennel. It's just a chain-link fence enclosure, 8 feet by 12 feet (and 6 feet high). I got it because in addition to bees I have a toddler.
The bees don't seem to mind being caged - they fly right through the cage.
My bee supplier said it could also help a little with skunks.
