    Re: Moved hive question

    I went and checked on the "left behind" bees, this morning. I saw no bees flying, and no bees where the hive was, but when we were leaving we looked up and there was a cluster about the size of a...

    Re: Moved hive question

    Thanks Bigbore. This hive had gotten pretty defensive and was a big hive. I don't want anyone around until the last of the bees leave or die off.
