lots of open fields, cow pastures with massive palm clumps and 2 organic farms, the owner of the property where the hives are going also owns the farms and wont allow chemicals sprayed all over everything.

Nice property...lots of room....could have a lynching out there and no one would hear anything....if the need ever presented itself of course.....sry, couldn't resist, it just burns me up that someone would destroy your stuff like that and now you have to move!

ok, I remember some1 saying something during all my easy removals about "the only way it would be easier for me was if they showed up at my door on there own" well, it happened, Ill take a pic in the morning but a swarm moved into the concrete block I use to hold up my stands, and i checked the 5 hives there and they are not my bees (yet)

Set an empty hive next to them (if it had some drawn frames would work even better) and encourage a move with a little smoke.

I removed the hives off the stand picked up the block and turned it sideways and the bees fell into the nuc, love to watch them march in its sooo cool, also moved my hives to the new location, even had a audience while I was setting up there

Looks good!!

Hope the fence on the back of the hives is far enough away to keep the hay burners from knocking them over.

Horses cant get within 6 feet of the hives and I did see the queen in the swarm btw, dark color and not very big, hope its not a virgin swarm, maybe they slimmed her down for flying?
