Vern Allen headed up our ongoing effort to move bees into a better location at the Cooperative Extension. While not perfect, the location provides for more sun during the day and better drainage patterns for water. The hives face south and will get out of shade as the sun rises and moves from east to west. In winter, the hardwoods providing the shade should shed leaves. The location is definitely easier to access and hopefully will lead to healthier colonies and lessen the need to buy replacement bees.
