Beehive height

Greenfield, OH(Zone 6a)

How high off the ground should I place my bee hives? Is a typical cinder block high enough or too high?

I believe 6" or even higher if you don't want to bend down.
A cinder block is find.

Arcade, NY(Zone 5a)

my hives are 20 inches off the ground to keep the skunks out. its also good for ventilation with screen bottom boards.
