Hello fellow beeks, this site is priceless, just say'n.
Is this do-able?
My drones are taking flight.
Going into my second year with two strong hives. My goal(s)...
In my newbie brain, here's my plan, set-up a stand directly behind the hive(s) which are side-by-side on permanent stands-don't ask.
Place wood ware on new stand, it will be about 3 feet back and maybe a foot lower, then do an even split while placing the old hive along side the new split hive at the new location. That was a tongue twister.
Then using good advice from MB, after a week or so, switch the boxes to help even the drift.
Eventually when all said and done there will hive (4) split hives, side-by-side and all adjusting to a new entrance location.
Looks like a traffic jam in my brain.
Can you split and relocate at the same time? How long would you or not, wait before splitting the other hive?
Appreciate any and all advice and/or suggestions.
