I am new at this beekeeping hobby and I seem to have a small issue with some of my older bees. I initial set my bee yard in a good area, but as spring progressed along, it became apparent to me that the hives where too cool during the daylight hours. So, I more the bee yard a hundred yards or so. Now the hives are doing a most better job, the numbers are up, the day flights are strong and the brood has expanded to great numbers. Now the small problem....I have a couple hundred ( many be more like 5 to 6 hundred) bees returning to the old yard. I have placed a nuc in the old yard and they all moved right in. Is this all for not, or is there a way to return the lost bees home?

Thanks,

Bill
