Ken is making plans to finally move some of his Langstroth colonies to his property located several counties away from his home apiary. But, since beekeeping is typically a weekly event at this time of year, how does one go about trying to manage a growing colony when you are several hours away and likely will not see your colonies but maybe once a month? John and Ken talk through some of the initial concepts to plan for such an adventure. The guys also discuss how to re-wax the plastic core foundation in an effort to get the bees to fully draw out comb on the plastic, as well as the potential effects of a prolonged La Nina weather pattern.
