Will moving a hive disorient the bees?
I recently collected a small swarm that I was not ready for. So I placed them in a temporary makeshift hive until I could place them in a better hive. It has been about 10 days and they are getting established. The new hive location is only about 20ft away from the current location. I have already replaced the hive body and inner cover but now I need to replace the bottom board. Can I replace the bottom board in the move or should I do this prior to the move? Is there a better time of day to do this? Will the move disorient the bees?
