    Question regarding Escapes?

    Successfull removal, now what??? About 65,000 bees, and the same # of brood were removed successfully and are going to a new home. I was happy to be able to dress out and assist with the process of cutting combs and tying them into new frames. Wow what fun!!! Got a couple of small jars of honey...

    Question regarding Escapes?

    Thanks for the advice, one more question I'm in US. Can you tell me, does the queen have to be removed prior to the new colony being able to go back in and retrieve the honey? If so how do you get the queen out?

    Question regarding Escapes?

    I am considering using an cone screen escape to get bees out of a dwelling (house) and am wondering what would happen if there were no adjacent hive placed near the escape? Would the bees find a place to relocate or would they die? :thanks:
