Maximum Crop & Earthquake Proof Hive Stand
I get so sick and tired of Charlie and Ray bragging about their ant proof hive stands. I just don't have ant problems that worry me. But out here in California we have earthquakes and bears. Global Warming could bring about a resurgence of Woolly Mammoths and Mastodons. Those are dangers that could damage a lightweight hive stand that we have to be prepared for. I set up a new apiary for a client who had antique 8X8 redwood beams left over from construction right at the apiary location. I am so impressed with myself for using them to make this new hive stand. But Charlie thinks it is a big yawn. I am at a loss on how to impress him.
Two problems with the new apiary: too shady and no private corner in which to pee.
All of my opinions and suggestions are based on my five decades of actual beekeeping,
not so much on book learning, watching YouTube videos nor reading internet sites.
