The Experiment Begins!
An old wooden granary is cleaned out to become my top bar hive Bee Barn.
I placed weeds in front of the entrance holes, the thought being that it aids in them having to reorient themselves after the move. If they don’t, they’ll fly back to the wood shed in search of their hive that is no longer there. By the time I was done, it was cold and getting dark. I will have no chance to watch them leave their hive in the morning as I have to go to work myself.
This is the true test… to see if they return to this hive in my new Bee Barn! Fingers crossed!
