What would be your plan for a queen on that half a hive?
I do trapout's with a one comb of brood this anchors the trapped out bees.They make emergency Queen cells
I'm pretty sure IDEE has that in his "Trap-Out" how to's??
If not I know I was told to do it and it worked like a charm, I did 2 since
I did loose my first one 6 months later do too my mistakes but when I set the brood in the trap out box
The bees came from the tree like crooks leaving Mexico.
He stated the tree was has too come down but has a chance to get the bees first unless I read it wrong :?
won't be my first :-D
