I have two hives, one weak and one strong. The strong hive is about to swarm. I've been trying to keep it from swarming for several weeks now by reversing hive bodies and by making a split. But they still seem intent of swarming. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried switching the positions of a weak hive and a strong hive to balance out the populations. The idea is that all the working bees would return to the weak hive and the strong hive would have more space and the threat of swarming would be reduced. I have heard of experienced beeks doing this, but the only check I have is the thought of bees trying to go into a hive that is not theirs and wheather this would start a bee battle and do more harm than good. Any thoughts?
