I am fairly new to beekeeping and have transferred 2 colonies from ground irrigation boxes into Flow Hives. I have a 3rd colony on the property that we want to relocate into a hive but it is very hard to get to and would appreciate any advice people have. The bees have been living in an owl nesting box for about 2 years. The box is on a 4x4 post about 8 feet off the ground and on a slope. To top it off nesting boxes are closed except for one side clean out door. So thoughts are do we move them into a hive? If so what is the best way to access them without pissing them off to much. OR do we leave them where they are since it is not close to people or animals etc.?
Thanks for your help,
