I wanted an Observation Hive, I have 4 4 X 9 sliding glass doors for free and bee hive hit by tree what more could you ask for.
The hive is not to bad but looks like it will fall apart if i try to move it.
Know the problem, I was told that you should not move the hive short distance you should move like 3 miles then week later move to new spot \ other side of filed.
I did not know if this was true, 25 years ago i was putting in a new garden and moved a 5 supper hive 200 feet at night the next day a lot bees fly round and round the spot i moved it from.
Question 1 what is the best way to move bees to the Observation Hive 150 feet
Question 2 I will use the Langstroth bee way gap 5⁄16 inch (7.9 mm) from the glass to the frameis this ok
