    Unfortunately someone pushed over our two hives. We were able to get one of the hives up righted. This time we are ratcheting them together instead of placing bricks on top. However, the other hive is substantially more aggressive and in a more difficult location to reach. I am thinking looking to see if I can borrow a Bee Vacuum and remove the bees from the hive, upright it, and place the bees back in. What are your thoughts regarding this.

    Once we get them both up righted and stable we will look to make sure the queens are still viable.
