I'm just starting from scratch. I'm a avid home brewer and cyclist. I'm also a amateur welder and woodworker. I started making mead and researching honey. That's about it. I built 2 TBH and 3 swarm traps. I've got a friend that owns an abandoned house with a hive located in it. This hive is at least 5 years old. I guess I'm curious if I do a cut out do I need to move all of the bees away from the area? Or can I just remove the comb and seal it off? Then hopefully the bees will stay in my new hive which I had planned to store on the same property.
