I'm not sure how to get them to come out.  Thought about letting them swarm and then catch the virgin queen when she comes out to mate, but not sure that idea will work.  I'll try to get a video if I do a cut out, thanks for the idea. :)

Ken, wow!!  Nice picture.  Yep, doesn't it make ya wonder how the bees can survive with icicles hangin' off their roof?  Good job.  Have a wonderful and awesome day, love our earth.  Cindi
