    I live on the Gulf Coast, how do you experienced beeks prepare your hives for a hurricane? I thought that I might screen the tops and bottoms and put them in the garage. Does that seem a resonalble way to secure them. This is my first year with bees.

    Thanks Big Ern. That site is much better than the NOAA's tracking.

    From what I have read. People use the dog tie outs. The ones that screw into the ground and strap down their hives to those.

    I have been through both Rita and Ike with bees. I just put something heavy on top of them, like a cinder block. I have only lost two hives (out of about 100) and those where during Ike. They weren't quite far enough away from a large Oak tree that went down, and got crushed.

    I started laughing my butt off over this one. My wife is in the kitchen just looking at me weirdly, and then I read your post. Thought she was gonna spit the water right out of her mouth.
