Is it best to move hives in the evening? I have a few to move and it makes sense to do it later since that's the best time to hive swarms???
Also...since I'm a real lightweight I can't strap hives together to move, but must move a box at a time. What should I expect to happen? Do I need smoke? Should I seal entrances with screen???? I will probably even have to transfer frames to empty boxes on my tractor if they are really heavy. Normally hubby does this, but is gone this week.
Buy locally, buy only humanely raised animals, eat in season, keep bees!
