So, I do have to move my 2 beehives about 30 feet.

It has been 3 days of really miserable weather here. Poured down rain hard all day on Tuesday, yesterday was cold (48 degrees), stiff east wind, mist on and off but no rain. This morning, pouring rain, said to let up a while this afternoon with more pouring rain and possibly bad storms from about 5:00 to about 2:00 in the morning. Afternoon high in the low 50's with more mist and wind.

If I got out there and moved them at like 5:30 tomorrow morning at first light, do you think it would minimize the amount of "left behind" field workers trying to find the hive?

My thinking is that there can't be many out in the fields after this kind of weather. Saw virtually NO flight in or out last evening after I got home from work.

You'd be better off moving them just as the sun is going down instead of sun coming up. Hope for another day or 2 of bad weather, and you'll be fine. Good luck. PP
