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.
see my swarms and cut outs at

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!
