My garden fence was messed up this winter. I have to replace a few posts and with the electric fence down a bear must have reached over and tried pulling the hive over.
I didnt notice it was pulled and hanging a bit to the side(i had it ratched in place) until I got stung a couple of times. They were angry. I had to suit up and put the hive back together and they were angry.
I could hardly see they were in my face. I put them back on and ratched the strap back down....but I have to get that fence fixed quick.
I am thinking about moving the hive to my orchard which has a bit more fencing in place. Anyone have any suggestions for moving a hive? at night? early morning?
