Here is a simple to build 2x4 ants proof (high temp grease) wooden hive stand. I like the idea to place my bee hives after an ant loss last year,
at the same ants hill again or at any location, individually in the shade or out in full sun. I built a prototype last year and put 4 medium supers on
without any issue. But forgot the ant proof high temp grease inside the cups idea from here. So don't throw away your after use instant noodle temper resistant (sorta) non-biodegradable plastic cups from Thailand, o.k. Don't forget to reuse and recycle too! Good for your bees and the environment as well.
