I'm moving houses, and I want to move the apiarist's chest without things being spilled. How can I accomplish this? I cannot pick it up with the Gravity Gun.

long pipe, item tesseract, enderchest, AE drives,... – ratchet freak Apr 14 '13 at 22:11
@ratchetfreak Why AE drives? – Jeffrey Lin Apr 14 '13 at 22:11
the storage cells can be moved and store 64 different bees at the time – ratchet freak Apr 14 '13 at 22:15
@ratchetfreak The chest can store more. – Jeffrey Lin Apr 14 '13 at 22:24
I meant for the movement, you pump a bunch in the system and move the drive over and empty it on the other side, – ratchet freak Apr 14 '13 at 22:28

You can make an apiarist's bag (from extra bees I think), it can hold as many bees as the apiarist's chest, and can be carried around.

Put the bag into receiving mode and shift-click the chest with the bag in your hand. This sucks all the bees into the bag. Move the chest and then shift-click again in any other mode to empty the bag into the chest.

Excellent. It does exactly what I want. – Jeffrey Lin Apr 14 '13 at 22:37
@jeffreylin_ You couldn't have done it that fast. – Ronan Apr 14 '13 at 22:38
You could also break the chest and suck in all the bees. – Jeffrey Lin Apr 29 '13 at 21:44
