Moved hives north.

Spraying for West Nile virus starts tomorrow so today I took 3 of the 5 nucs north and set them up on the property.  The small swarm I caught last week seems queen-less so I installed 3 frames of brood, larvae and eggs (I hope as I can't see that well) from the strongest hive.  Now its a waiting game to see if they make a queen cell.  If not I'll try again.  Nothing tried, nothing gained.
