    Default Anyone have pics of a covered apiary built on stilts?

    I've searched online without success. I believe that in my wet climate, a covered apiary will greatly benefit the bees and equipment during the rainy/snowy seasons. (Sept through April)

    I also figure if it's off the ground 1-2' on a platform that will also be a benefit for airflow.

    Anyone try anything like this? Happen to have a pic to share?

    Those two links have pictures or links of AZ Beehives used in Slovenia. They are like trailers or sheds containing beehives up against one or more walls with entrances to the outside. This might work for you. Also, have you considered wintering hives indoors or in basement? Ian over winters his hives inside, and has posted a thread or two about it...

    While you are at it why not make it 12 feet off the ground, to keep the bears out also?
