I looked in the plot book to see who owns the land and turns out they are the people that we buy beats from every year for the deer, i will try to get ahold of them this week.

Anyways where i put the comb and honey on are deck no bees came so i moved it closer probly 150 ft' from the hives and still no bees, so i wonder if you have to have the honey right under there nose for them to go for it, or maybe where just in a nectar flow right now and they found somthing better than there own honey.

Hard to compete with a good nectar flow.

I moved it about 75 ft. away now maybe they will get it.

I went over and talked to the guy that owns the property that the 40 hives are on and he said there not his, i'd have to talk to the guy that owned them. So i got his number and called him and he wasnt home, so ill see if he calls back and see what he says.
