Moving bees into the Barn
Just thought about doing this but I need some insight. I have never wintered bees before, I have done a fair bit of reading but I need some advice. I have 2 hives, one is small and the other is quite large, both are this years nucs and its starting to get cold up here so the wintering planning has begun. I was thinking about moving the bees into a small barn that we have over the winter to keep them sheltered. The one problem is that the barn is only 100 feet away from where the bees are right now, I have been told that moving bees a short distance is not a good idea and it can cause confusion... is this the case?
