My friend has bees that have swarmed several times. I was able to capture one of his swarms a few days ago. I brought the swam to my house 15 miles away.
My question is, if you are able to capture a swarm (from your own hive) can you install the swarm back into your bee yard, or do you have to move them 5+ miles away?
When I have made splits, I take the bees to his house and visa versa and this has worked in the past.
Hoping we can just put the bees in a new hive on his property and avoid the long distance hauling of the bees.
