Hey guys, a lady has bees in her tree. The cavity starts at ground level and extends up into the tree, I am guessing 2 & 1/2 to 3', cause I can see bees on both sides of the cavity and some extending down from where I believe is the top ceiling of the cavity. The bees have been in the tree since last Thursday, July 12th. I think this to be fairly if not completely accurate since she has to pass the tree to enter the front door. We don't have much of a nectar flow right now, so I doubt there is much comb. The opening is not large enough to put my hand into and I don't want to use the bee-vac. I have used fischer's bee-quick before and was thinking of using it in this instance, to run the bees out and into a deep with some brood frames. I do lots of removals but not many on trees. My main question is whether the queen would leave and enter the deep with the rest of the bees. I haven't tried this before so I am looking for the best option. I haven't performed trapping before and in fact I e-mailed Iddee from Beesource and that's what he said he would do, (trap them out)but I think the bee-quick would work but I know queens can be difficult to leave once they have gotten established. I would like some feed back, especially from those who may have been here before. Thnks, Jp.
