I have a questin as I only know about working bees in Colorado.  My cousin has a colony in his brick house down in Houston and wants me to get them.  I live in Dallas and am currently beeless here in Dallas.  I think it will take a trapout to get them without having to do major surgery.  I can do it but
a) its a 6 hr trip one way
     1) but its Houston I would get to see the beach alot and do a little fishing too
b) its soon to be October and I don't know how it would work in the winter but it is Houston

Should I wait till spring time or being it is Houston could I do the trap out and just keep them down there in Houston till late Feb. and bring them back up here to Dallas?  I really want to keep bees here locally as I sold all my bees when I moved here in June and I am running out of honey..... boo hoo....
Also is a trap out the best idea for the girls?  I need to get up in the attic and look but with the time I have with a trap out and they can do daily checks on the capture box for me.  I just really don't know about the weather.  Any advice would be GREAT.

Thanks,
Dave

I think I would wait on spring.  Trap out would be easy if there is only 1 escape.

You're going to have to find either young brood or a queen for the trapped bees to flourish..do you have those resources?

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
