[..you may not, probably will not, get the queen out. ]
This is one theory that I am testing and documenting.
I disagree. I think she will come out, now capturing her may be another story.
I'm interested in seeing how you make out as well. A lot depends on the method. If your going to just super on the top and let them work there way out of the tree, your chances are much higher. If you using a screened funnel on the exit, it is a different story. Every time I have tried a screen trap out without using a lure queen or giving them brood to raise a queen, I've ended up with a laying worker.
I'd also be interested in hearing your rationale of why you think she will leave.
