I got a new queen as one of the queens in my package absconded.
I installed her last month.
I checked the hive yesterday and they are down to only 1 frame.
When I installed there was bees on 4 or 5 frames.
I got 3 other hives, and 1 double stack.
I want to take a frame of brood from the double stack (Benedetta) and put into the other hive (Gioffredda).
So what is the best way to do it? Take a frame and shake all the bees off before inserting into (Gioffreda) I need some nurse bees to be included.
This is what Gioffreda looked like several weeks ago after I installed the queen.
What is the best way to do it? I want to move 1 frame of brood from another hive to get the nurse bees hatching.
I think also I can move the hive into a different position so I get drifting going on from the other hive.
