Screened bottom boards and hurricanes- do they mix?
This is my first post on this forum. I am preparing to get back into (hobby) beekeeping this next spring after 35 year hiatus. My home is on the Mississippi gulf coast. As I read about all the pests that were not a problem the last time I kept bees, there is a lot of talk about screened bottom boards. I envision that the 140 mph winds would create quite a bit of turbulence within the hive that could damage things. What are your experiences with screened bottom boards in hurricanes?
