I am new to beekeeping with 5 hives. I live in Florida and may be in the path of hurricane Dorian. What do I do to protect my hives? 2 of them have a double brood chamber and 2 supers, 1 has a deep and a super and the other 2 are new and have just a brood chamber. When Irma came through we had 90 mile per hour winds...would rather not do that again!
I figure that I will need to put ratchet straps around the hives. Any ideas on how to keep them from blowing over?
Any and all advice is appreciated.
