    Someone asked me this question. What would you suggest? Thanks!

    We moved our hive about 150 feet up a hill, at night. We released them in the morning and left clear markers. It’s been 4 days and the main hive seems to be getting back to normal, but a growing swarm is also gathering at the old location, on an extra hive box. Can we just move this swarm up to the new location?
