Moving question

1054 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  TXbeekeeper
I have to move some hives to a new location tomorrow and it's only 2 miles from the current location. It's my understanding the new location should be farther away so any suggestions on how to make this work?

block the entrance with grass/cedar limbs,etc-not completely,but enough to slow them a bunch and they will reorient themselves 'cause they know somethings changed. after a day, remove it,and all will be well. good luck,mike

Thanks guys. I already have the screens made, just waiting for dark to block them. Ya'll have made me feel a lot better about the move and I'll semi-block the entrance with grass when I take the screen out. Thanks again.
