Moving hives for a couple of days


Unfortunately a tree close to my hives has become unsafe and will have to be removed soon. I have to move the hives for a couple of days to complete the work.
It will be late fall / winter when we take down the tree so I was thinking of blocking off the entrance, move the hives and leave it blocked off until they are back in their original location.
Would that work? Any other suggestions?


Should be fine as long as it is no longer than 3 days. Even bees gotta poop, and they don’t like to do it inside the hive! :blush:
