I am going to redo my hive stand to make it a bit more stable. The hive will be in the same place maybe slightly lower. I will need to move the hive to take apart the stand and rebuild it. It won't take long to do. Should I do something like that at night or this winter when the bees are not as active? My hive is only one deep box with a medium super on top, so I don't have much to break down to move the hive to the side and replace the stand and then put everything back. I am in Central TX so we have mild winters here....not too worried about chilled brood. Just want to know what will be easier on me by not making the bees too mad jostling them around more than usual?

Thanks!

Here's what I did this spring. Moved all 3 hives 4' in front of the stand in the same order. Rebuilt stand. Moved 3 hives to the same spots.
