Underwater hives

Recommended Posts

Came accross this poor guy on FB, here are some pics and cut and pasted posts from him.

 

Update on my bee yards. Still dry but water is topping the levee by my slab yard. Tomorrow my bees will bee surrounded by water. I finished raising all my hives today and they are 6inches higher than the highest water mark that we ever had. Now just wait and see what Mother Nature will do. Here's some of my bee yards

 

Made it back to the bee yard today. A lot of hives went under but stayed in place. The first brood boxes are under but had the tops open for them. I'm sure they will bee good. Lost about 20 so far.i have50 more in the back I have to check on. Hip boot deep

 

Well I had a long day today in the bee yards. Raising all my hives 8 inches higher with cinder blocks. Four years ago I lost 50 hives in a flood. I have 125 hives in harms way and I think they will bee fine( fingers crossed).the next 3-4 days will bee nail biting with record breaking flood waters on it way.

Maybe he should be called "Bee Keeper of the Lake"

Sorry, Not a nice situation. I am glad it is not my hives.
