When a hurricane or storm heads towards your apiary you need to secure your hives stronger than just a brick on top! The easiest way I’ve found is to secure it with a ratchet strap and two pet anchors (only one in photo). You place an anchor on either side of the hive and then run the strap over it, tighten up, and you are done. You can drive stakes into the ground, but I’ve found this is the easiest for installation and removal. The pet anchor is in aisle 17 at my Lowes (BlueHawk – AC1017).
