This spring I decided to build pallets for the hives headed to the farm. Over time this will be a more manageable way to move the hives. In the short term, it’s a stable base that holds two hives at once, perfect for life in the field. The pallet is made from treated lumber and exterior grade plywood. Each side has its own entrance in front with a matching length to a double nuc allowing me to use the same entrance reducers with them. The pallet has retainer clips that align and hold the hive bodies in place. I’ll get these installed in their new home soon.
Despite working in IT, I prefer spending my time outdoors. I enjoy beekeeping, hiking, camping, and about anything else I can do outside. A Do-It-Yourself’er, I’ve spent much of my life learning new skills like beekeeping, carpentry, mechanics, construction, and more. This gives a refreshing break from the days of screen time we all endure.
