I have two L hives, one without a queen. Next year I'd like to have one L and one TBH. Should I bother requeening the L now or should I just let that hive die off over the winter and buy another colony in the spring for my TBH? I only have room for two hives.
Is there anyway I can take those bees and throw them into the TBH right now with a queen? I wouldn't think they would be able to build comb fast enough. Bees will cluster here in about 4 weeks.
