    The owner of property where i have two hives is planning to spray weed killer this weekend. The hives are along the woodline, in the edge of the field to be sprayed. What should i do? Should i move them tonight to another part of the property approx. 500 yards from this field? if so, how long do i wait to bring them back? is it ok just to cover with a wet sheet where they are; if so, what about the foragers that will not be able to return to the hive due to the sheet covering it?

    Thanks
