How many colonies do you have? Sometimes you can just switch the location of the hives (during the daytime of course) and the weaker one will get the field bees. Depending on other factors it is best to equalise colony numbers. Personally I have never found this top be practical but I do try to keep them all close to the same as far as number of bees per square inch of hive space.
