Ok, I admit it, I can be pretty dense when it comes to some things. I am about to pick up a swarm this afternoon that is in a tree, 9ft up. My first top bar hive is ready, all I need to do is set it up. Which brings me to my question...I read on several occasions that the hive needs to be as level as possible. Does that mean level in both directions (that is parallel to the bars and level from front to back? Am I over-thinking this (wouldn't be the first time... )?
Thanks in advance. And let's hope that swarm is still there when I want to pick it up this afternoon... :-)
