A simple hive stand:
use straight
wood cut
from local
fix together
with rope or
put stand
feet into
tins of oil
to stop
ants from
climbing up
Use hanging wires if honey badgers are a danger;
The hanging wires must allow the hive to tip easily to prevent
raiding animals;
The wires need to be well greased to keep ants away;
Hang hives at least 1 metre from the ground.
Notice how the
wires are twisted
to make a single
strand to defend
the hive against
honey badgers.
