Bullship, I have then inside for about 5 or 6 days now. I put them in an area 4 ft by 4 ft., that I partitioned with 2x2 framing and then some window screen. Ever since I covered the windows with tar paper, the bees have quit coming out of the hive. I have about 100 dead bees on the floor, but thats it. I have a reducer in the bottom opening. with the 1 inch opening. The hives were very heavy when I moved them, so I suspect that there is alot of honey stores.
Some questions for you Bullship. How many hives do you have indoors? How long have you done tis? Do you feed them, if so, how often and what? Do we need to worry about disintary, if we feed and they aren't flying?
Thanks for your help. Nice to hear from someone so close.
