Hi Friends. It’s been a while since I posted and my bees are hanging in there! They’ve survived my clumsy move of the hives 100m, the drought and one of the two hives is starting to look right. The other is struggling. It has multiple emergency queen cells, some drone cells, no capped brood and not many adult bees. However it has some uncapped brood.
About a kilometer from the apiary there is a swarm that’s taken up residence in a tree trunk. It’s a great spot for a hive and that swarm is doing very well so well it’ll probably swarm soon. My question is - am I able to take some of the swarm bees and merge them with my struggling hive? If so how do I do it?
