We are starting our first 2 hives this week with package bees, is 20'' to close for 2 hives? I don't want them migrating to one hive. could I wait to start the 2nd hive the next day? any advice is welcomed..
I've had a lot of issues in recent years with drifting. The hives they drifted to were often 10 feet away. I don't see any more or less issues with them up against each other. Installing just before dark is more helpful...
