Re: CNG- Hive Stand Height Requirement
My hives were mounted on 4x4s (only 3.5 inches). It enabled me to move heavy hives by myself using a handtruck. I wrote and asked the same question. I got what I considered an absolutely ridiculous answer about small animals being unwilling to expose their undersides at a hive entrance. I have no idea who dreamt that one up. I needed to be CNG to sell at a nice, active local farmers' market. So I removed the 4x4s and put all of my hives on cinderblocks....and now it requires two people to move one. And then there was the issue of screened bottom boards....don't even get me started.
If it weren't for that farmers' market....and truth be told I may let it lapse anyway.
