    Default Will this work?

    I have a split that may not have enough bees (weak split) can I switch location with another hive and gain thier foraging force?

    Yes. Also consider taking a full comb of brood or two from your other colonies (providing they are strong)./

    Hi Bella just put in one or two fully capped frames from other hives without the bees.
