Never set a small stack of honey supers on the ground below the sight-line in front of your pickup.

I appreciate you passing that on. There will be some out here (me for one) that will remember this and learn from the mistake you made.

The field that I have my bees in has 6 city storm drainage manhole covers (+2 foot across and over 100 yards apart) that poke up from one to two foot high. I've almost hit them when the grass is tall in my Polaris Ranger more than once. Had I hit them at the speeds I was going I would have been lucky to have just broken bones. I decided over the winter to put up Blue Bird houses right next to each one as 6 ft tall markers. Now I always know where they are and I ended up with 4 Blue Bird, 1 Chickadee, and 1 Titmouse mating pairs.

and always, always tie down your supers after you load the flatbed. :doh:

Never throw a frame cover with bees down on the ground when you get a sting in a finger joint. It seems to annoy them! :doh:

Never set a smoker on the ground, to cool, in back of the truck.

Nevr vist an outyard, in a dearth, with supers of honey in the back of the truck ...with the windows open.
