This morning I went to collect my bees from a beekeeper, and he gave me two Italian style beehives.
I had anticipated transferring the bees into my new Honeyflow hives (2 Nr.)
So, bees in original hives have been placed on my table.
And my question is which is the best option to follow:
- Should I place the Honeyflow brood box on top of the existing hives, making it a two storey hive, and three-storey when I add the Honeyflow?
- Should I try and transfer the bees from the hive to the Honeyflow brood box.
Note: I will be opening the hive to have a look this evening when it’s cooler and the bees have settled into their new location.
Thanks for all helpful advice
