Thanks for the feedback, Sterling and Joe D. Much appreciated. I have entrance feeders in both hives. I've also got entrance reducers on both hives, but I have them positioned with the larger opening (which is about 3 inches) facing out rather than the smaller opening (which is about an inch). I'm going to do as you suggest and try to move half the bees back to the hive with the lonely queen. I think I'll reduce the entrance in that hive.  I probably won't get a chance to work on the hives until Friday, which is when I was planning to see if the queens have been released. If the queens have been released by Friday, I suppose this process will be more difficult, as I'll need to make sure I'm not moving the queen from the busy hive to the hive with the lonely queen.

Assuming the queens have not been released, will it be okay to go ahead and release the queens the same day that I move part of the bees?

Do you have a feeder in the hives, that can help them want to stay.  I would also try switching the positions of the hive. If you have a feeder in the hive, you may want to try closing the hive entrance, leaving gaps for air circulation, for a day or so after you get some of the bees back to it.  Good luck

I would shake half of the bees back into the hive with the lonely queen and move it to somewhere else that the bees can't get to the hive they are trying to get into until the queen starts laying and has brood then bring them back.

I was wondering if the excess rain may have water down the sweetness of the floras. I know a lot of times during a rainy summer things like watermelons, peaches, plums, and so on, just don't taste as good compared to the years of drought. I think the sugar content is higher then since the water is lower. Just my way of thinking.

what is utopia to the far left?  it's fairness...economic fairness.  their path to equality.  someone has to enforce equality.  that's where the ruling class comes in.  of course they would never call themselves the ruling class, but if you look at all leftist countries, that's where they are, or where they are headed. 

they promise fairness. they destroy the middle class.  they destroy some of the wealthy.  they destroy private enterprise.  they take what they want and redistribute what's left over, and what they have not destroyed.  there's never enough for the people, but there's always plenty for the administrators.

tell me you don't see that happening here?
