So that vacuum sucks them into that box?? > Yes, but I try to use it sparingly.
Then you just shake them from the box into the super?? > yes.
What is in the super to keep them from running out to their old home??? > That is a very intelligent response considering you haven't performed any cutouts. I transfer the broodcombs along with some honey and beebread combs into the hive box. A good bit of bees want to be where the brood is and when I transfer these combs there are bees that stay on the combs while performing the transfer. But yes, your insticts told you correctly, that a lot of the bees especially the foraging bees will want to go back to the old hive sight. This is where beeproofing comes into play.
I wish I could run around and watch you do these cutouts. You make it all look so easy. > Its a real challenge sometimes but lots of fun and hard work, but well worth it to save colonies!!! I will continue to post and provide pictures. I have to go and perform another one today, yes, I know its Sunday, but I'm trying to stay ahead of the game. I have procrastrinated enough. I could just play on the computer all day, but bees are waiting!!!!
Thanks for sharing. > You are quite welcome Annette. ;)
