I can’t explain but I can give you an idea. This is just my take on the subject and how I behave. Bees know what to do! Once set up in the hive and allowed as much as possible to act like bees they should be fine. Nobody is moving honey around in feral hives and the bees seem to find it. If bees are deficient in some way and can’t find their own stores then nature will let them die. Another colony will find the now available stores and take them for their own. Again nature’s way of working things out. Bees have lived naturally for millions of years… a record that far exceeds man. Only since man started making them into farm animals have they suffered so. Beekeeping philosophy ranges from Super bees breed to do what I want, that I must feed and treat and manipulate to my every desire; to putting my feral bees in a box and leaving them alone as much as possible. You will have to find your comfort zone, develop your own philosophy and apply those principles to your very own method of beekeeping.
