I had planned to get started this spring as i have been reading all i can about bees.....i have been caretaking a place that has a couple of hives and the person that was going to take them has decided not to. The owner of the property has asked me if i want them. I do want them but the hives have been neglected for some time, some of the wood is rotten, one of my questions is if i can move them without falling apart can i put the frames in new hives that i have or would it be better to do that before i try to transport them ????
