I recently watched JP's removal of this colony - a real nice job!
The title on You Tube was: JP And Monkey Man Remove Bees In Kenner, Louisiana - Medium.m4v
I've done a few cut outs and I've always had a hard time catching the queen. On most, I wasn't even sure I had collected her with the rest of the colony until I got home and waited a few days. No eggs, no queen. That was my technique. It's very exciting and I'm learning as I'm going but I could use all the help I can get. So, JP, I'd really like to know how you do it. In this video, JP leaves a small section of comb attached, to apparently lure the queen out of the corner. What is the science behind this? Why would this piece of comb possibly lure out the queen to go to it?
How do you folks get that queen?
