095 – Long Distance Beekeeping

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.
