This article and video will show a simple inexpensive method to tie down your beehives for storm protection. Protecting them from high winds and storms. Nothing is worse than coming out to your bee yard after a strong wind storm to find all your hives knocked over.

 This method uses simple "Rebar Pins" from your local big box store. At about $2.50 each they are super cheap and easy to use. Simply drive the rebar pins into the ground and use inexpensive tie-down straps, i like the ratchet type, to secure your beehives firmly to the ground.

Watch this video to see how it's done.
