Re: Turning a Hive 180 degrees
I put an Immerie shim under the bottom box with the little entrance facing the old direction. Bees can still find their way in but will start using the larger main entrance that is now facing the direction you want. After a few weeks, you can take the shim out.
I satrt my nucs alternating directions but spin them before hiving as all hives on a rail face the same direction.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
