Re: Bee net setup, what do you recommend?
We get custom fitted two piece net sets made for the largest size load that we might haul. For that few of hives, though, I would just get a piece cut to the dimensions needed making sure you have plenty to tuck under and you don't run short on the corners, then rope or strap over the top of it. Perhaps a local nursery would have some extra shade netting that they would sell you, it's light and works quite well for bee netting.
