Hives successfully moved to new out apiary today. Travel screens on top, entrances blocked with foam and duct tape, bees sprayed with a fine mist of water.

Loaded in the car with a sheet over them, as some bees were under the floor, not bothered by a few flying in the car, as they settled on the windows as expected.

I will go back tomorrow to open the entrances, hopefully having been closed up will force the bees to re-orientate as the new location is less than 3 miles from the temporary site they were at. Hopefully by doing this they won’t leg it back to the old location.
