It has now been 4 weeks and it appears that no bees are leaving the cone. This was a small trap out with only three frames of bees in the bait box. I am planning to remove the cone next week and seal up the hole and call this job complete.
I am going to start another trap out next week that also appears to be a small colony. Can I use this hive, bees and all, for my bait hive on the next cut out? Will the bees in the hive that is now queen right accept the trapped out bees from another colony?
Thanks Mr iddee for all of your advice,
