After you get the hive at ground level and put the combs in frames with rubber bands, leave the hive body at the site for at least 2 days so the bees can secure the combs to the frames, before you move them. Also, by leaving the hive, all of the bees will aclimate to the hive body. Its important that you get the queen so look carefully for her and place her in the hive. I prefer to cage her so she doesn't leave, some may suggest you use a queen excluder to keep her in. If you can't get the queen or she gets killed its good to leave the hive anyway with pheremone to attract the bees to the hive, lf you don't have pheremone, lemongrass oil can substitute. Good luck and have fun. Believe it or not, the exposed ones are the easy ones.
