    I am new to beekeeping. We were moving the beehives and one got jostled and the bottom board got moved. The bees were pretty agitated, and on the outside so we left them in the back of the truck to calm down. Does anyone have any advice on how to help fix and move the beehive the last 10 ft. Thank you for any help.

    • When I moved my hives I attached external braces on both sides that secured the base to the box. The braces were nothing more that 1”x 2” boards secured by screws. I used a dolly to move the box once it was on the ground.

    • Maybe just get a strap from Home Depot or rope and a slip knot and strap the hive together. Smoke the bees a little to calm them down. They will bee fine.
