moving hives to trim trees
I need do some radical trimming to my pepper trees. The hives are directly under the trees so I will have to move them (the bees not the trees). As long as I am doing that I also want to re-orientate the hives facing them more southernly. I will also be putting them on an ant proof stand (ala charlie b's design) all of which may take a day or three to accomplish.
I'm looking for advice on the temp relocation and reinstallation of the hives. I don't have a lot or room but think I could move them 10 or 15 feet while doing the work.
