When I drink coffee. I move again 6 box hive to outer pasture 20 km away. There are rape field which have winter shelter. There are woods which protect at least some parts of fields .

I have 20 hectares rape 2 km away from my cottage yard. But I will loose 70% of my yields for long distance.  It is wide windy area too as I saw yester.

If weather is favorite (not too warm) that hive will catch 80 kg or 100 kg in 2 weeks.

I just tell hat you may ruin your whole years work with this kind of thing.

A feral hive with some boxes... I have nursed them 30 years.
If you like them, you like.

Feral = non breeded, non selected.

Do nothing - is it some advice...
