I am buying a hive from a member of my local bee club. This was her first year of beekeeping and she had a severe reaction to a sting. So, I think I have this move worked out in my mind. Let's hope the bees agree with me. Tomorrow I am going to go and remove the 3 supers of drawn comb she had on the hive. Some BeeGo on a fume board should get those bees out quick enough. The bottom super is packed with honey, the second has a little and the 3rd has none to speak of. They are queen right and have some honey stores in the bottom. The following evening, at dusk, my niece and her husband and myself with load the hive into the back of a pickup. They have been wanting to try their hand at beekeeping, so the hive will go to their home, in the country. The weather is suppose to cooperate and actually be in the 80's. I think we will use some hardware cloth over the entrance just in case of overheating. Ratchet straps should hold the hive stable. When we get them on the new hive stand, I'll show the kids how to feed them with a hive top feeder and let them be for a few days. Have I forgotten anything? I'll try to remember to take pictures. This is going to be fun!
