Changing hive orientation


#1

Hi Guys , i want to move my hive over a distance of about 2 meters. the issue is that rhe hive opening is at the moment north facing and about 10 cm above ground level. At the new location the opening will be east facing and 60 cm above ground level. Would the height and orientation difference create any problems ?

if you only have the one hive they wont have a problem at all with a distance like that.

I once moved a hive about 10 metres in one step.
For the next few days returning bees would collect near the old location with a number of them circling around the yard and then about once an hour they would all take off in a swarm to their new location
