Temporary Hive Location
« on: October 12, 2012, 11:48:44 PM »
Poured some concrete strips at my place to set pallets of bees on. I need to take them from home and bring them back. How long should I keep them away to sufficiently re-orientate before I bring them back?

Thanks!!!!

I have moved a couple of hives in the yard to a different spot in yard and just cut some branches and places in front of the hives so that would have to go through them.  They reacclimated when they flew out.  Had read that somewhere before tring it, it did work for me.
