      Greetings ,
      Step by step :
      First Change the place of hive
      keep little sugar on the previous place
      Next
      clean the hive box& surrounding place and place it proper on new base after greassing with grease or Vasline with thick band so that Ants with longer legs too are stopped
      Keep us informed
      take care
      ManyThanks
