Hurricane Precautions for Beekeepers Among Us

From: Liane
Sent on: Friday, August 26, 2011 9:04 AM

Friends -

As of 8.40 Friday morning August 26th, official word is that:

"While the forecast remains uncertain, there is a possibility New York City may experience hurricane or tropical storm conditions this weekend."

Hives ratchet-strapped down TO something, such as a shipping pallet from a local grocery store, are less likely to tip over in high winds. Loop the strap completely around the hive, and completely under the pallet slats, so that one end of the strap is hooked to the other, then ratchet down very tight.

IF YOU ARE IN AN EVACUATION ZONE PLEASE CALL THE BEE RESCUE HOTLINE:[masked]BEE (4233)
ABOUT MOVING YOUR HIVE TEMPORARILY TO SAFER GROUND.


To check whether you are in an evacuation zone: http://gis.nyc.gov/oe...
We've posted the map of evacuation zones in case the official website is busy: https://docs.google.c...

To monitor official updates please see http://www.nyc.gov/po...

We hope all will be well, but recommend taking precautions.
