I would like to transfer a hive to a new hive that I built. When is the best time to do this? The queen has been laying eggs and I have new bees in the hive. Her laying patern is great "football" shaped. They have been coming in with pollen. I just started feeding 1-1 until the flow is on. I am guessing once the flow starts and the weather is warmer. I will be moving the TB's over to the new hive. Transfering from a KTB to a Warre`. Any thoughts? I also would like to report that both my hives look like they have made it through the winter. Both queens are laying and there are a lot of new bees with strong population. Not to bad for a rookie.
