Hi! I have a dead tree that a hive has been living in for several years. The tree recently fell onto my roof and we later rolled it onto the ground. The hive is still intact and we were wondering how to move the tree and keep the bees safe when we heard of the flow hive. We have left the dead tree alone in anticipation of receiving the flowhive in December.
Any thoughts on how to move them into the flowhive when it arrives? I am new to beekeeping and I am interested in suggestions on books for newbies.
At this point I don’t really care how long the move takes, the dead tree has been blocking a walkway next to our house well over a year now. Just excited to eventually move the tree and have a pretty box there instead.
I would upload pictures but I am a new user to the website. When my restrictions are lifted I will post pictures to the general forum - the hive is so beautiful and multifaceted !! I can get really close and peer inside without alerting the hive. Bees are really cool
