In short: Had a bate hive set-up about 10 yards from a very active hive, the gals decided to land about 12 away' on a small shrub: O well. There are now in the bait hive - a 10 frame medium with a mix of frameless and salvaged old comb. Due to the size of the swarm this sucker is full of bees. I put 1:1 sugar on this AM.
The question is: how long do I leave this new hive sit before I move it (about a half mile) and transfer into a long Lang?:scratch:

move it now and put another bait hive exactly where the swarm landed-they often use the same spot. good luck,mike
