Thanks for all the replies.. I did the hand scooping bit. Best I could went back at dusk and all was well. Only a few stragglers picking at the old site. I moved em to the yard today.
My first and only hive of the year. One more rescue on this property from an OLD unattended hive. Basically a cut out the frames are so propolised they wont budge without breaking. I am pretty sure they are the ones who cast off I just cut out of the old house. Thank the good lord for small miracles.
