8 and 3 nucs...it's swarm time...
I've put a hive stand down on concrete slabs. At the bottom I have a thin sheet of mesh - OMF mesh, but no wood. This will stop critters getting in. Above that, I have dry supers, covered with Certan to prevent wax moth, then a crown board, then a roof. It is all lashed tight with a ratchet strap. It is in a dry bit of the garden, sheltered by trees, so it should be fine.
