Hi, All! Earlier this morning I moved one hive onto a different spot about 10 feet away.
Then I placed another empty hive with 2 frames of comb so the foragers can return to.
Tonight I checked on this hive but did not see any bee in there. All empty other than the
2 frames of comb.
So where did they all went? There is another hive next to it. But I did not notice an increase in
its population. You think the workers just flew away somewhere? Any idea how or where?

If the foragers went into a hive near where their hive had been you would not see a difference in the population of bees in those hives. Forager numbers aren't that great. You could look in the hive you moved and you won't see the difference. Not visually noticeable.
