I had a colony of bees move into some hives I had stored in my barn last August. They were doing well there so I left them in the barn for the winter (I am in upstate New York). They are still alive and I want to move them outdoors to a location about 1000 feet away. I have heard you shouldn't move bees more than 3 feet or less than 3 miles. I wonder if that rule applies if I move them during a cold period where they wouldn't leave the hive for a few days. This week is supposed to be chilly so I thought I might try moving the hive the short distance in the hope the bees wont remember where there old home was. Is this a reasonable plan?
