Bee transport trailer

I finished modifications on the trailer for safe bee transport.

We built runners as a second deck for the hives to sit on, with the Combs parallel to the direction of travel. Then we cut a 2x4 to fit on top of the bars of the hive and strapped it into place. This holds the bars steady to prevent vibration and bumps from knocking the bars and Combs around. Last step will be teaching the legs and slide the hives on the rack, held in place with more straps.

Cork the hives at night, and we are good to go!
