Last Thanksgiving, my brother in law said I could have an old hive of his. He said his bees ran off a year or two ago and would be glad if someone made use of it. It is about a 4.5 hour drive at a house he is renting to his daughter.
Well I finally got up here to look at the hive....and it is full of bees! So much for empty. I was just going to put each section into a bag and stick it in the trunk of the rental car I have, but now with the bees I am not sure how to do this.
New beek.....hive full of bees.....4.5 hour drive....rental car....January....
Can it be done or will I end up killing the bees, wrecking the car, or some other horrible fate I dare not consider.
Hive is located in Sherwood Oregon, I live near Medford.
