I know I have a yellow jacket nest somewhere near the hives. I suspect it is under my old hive stand (convenient, huh) So I have built a new hive stand, and I need to get the bee hives all off of the old one. Plus the one on the trailer would be easier to cover and protect, and get more sun, if it were with the rest. Seems to me the rule is either 10 feet or 10 miles. The one on the trailer is probably 40 feet from my other hives. But the hive on the new pipe stand, the left one, I only moved about 6 feet and it still lost its foragers to the hive I needed a few foragers on that I put in its place. I also think it is the hive that swarmed yesterday. Anyway, if I move these at 5:30 in the morning and stuff a leaf in them, from the pallet stand to the pipe stand, the bees will find their hives? And how many steps do I need to take to move the one on the trailer over? It has a new queen, and can't really spare bees right now.
