Switching hive bodies?
« on: April 28, 2010, 02:49:51 PM »
I've read in bee keeping for dummies and first lessons in bee keeping that they suggest switching hive bodies ( upper in place of lower and vicea versa) in the early spring to give the bees a percieved lot of room above them. They claim this assists in swarm prevention. Do any of yal use this method and what have been your results positive or negative? Thank's, Brad
If the only dog you can here in the hunt is yours, your probaly missing the best part of the chase.

no.  i will commit a sin here and suggest that you do a search on the subject....only because there have been some recent posts and i think the questions and answers were pretty good.
