Weighing Down Hives

I know some new beekeepers in eastern Newfoundland who read Mud Songs from time to time. If you’re reading this around 1pm on Friday, now would be a good time to weigh down your hives if you haven’t done so already.

According to the CBC, Hurricane Maria should smack into us right about now with winds around 120km/h (75mph), plus a whole lotta rain. My hives are well protected from the wind and have weathered through worse storms than this. But if your hives are out in the open, you might want to take some precautions.

One thought on “Weighing Down Hives

  1. I hope all you’re hives stayed put :)

    Personally I leave hive straps on any of my hives in exposed areas. Also saves me time from trying to remember where I put them when I go to move the hives :)
