Well, the total move was 12 feet. Moved them at night, placed a bbq real close to the front of the hive and this morning, they're buzzing round the place "it should be" and the first to find the hive are fanning out the "over here" pheromones like crazy. I know it was some of the first to find the new location because they were still wearing their pollen leg warmers.
As the day progressed, fewer and fewer were seen to hover in the old location and by about 3:00 p.m. or so all was back to normal with the exception it seems they're coming back across the old location en route to the new. Perhaps just making sure they're not delusional like they're keeper......John
