First real hive removal
« on: June 25, 2011, 01:53:44 PM »
I just removed some bees from a concrete form. They had some wax moth damage but seem to be doing ok. I have the Queen in a catcher and am wondering if I can leave the hive were it is for a couple days before I move it? will the Queen be ok that long in the hairclip catcher?

The queen will be fine and yes you can leave the new hive there. I would move it to your yard after dark so you will have the majority of the forager bees.
those hot bees will have you steppin and a fetchin like your heads on fire and your @ss is a catchin!!!

Bees will be bees and do as they please!
