    They always seem to find pollen somewhere to bring in and that's been the case here as well.

    Re: mid-winter bee tree rescue

    Your plan sounds reasonable but as stated if it warms a bit in your garage they will be trying to get out.

    If they have adequate stores, they should make it til spring. Do a cut out then.

    FL Beak, did you get the queen? If you did not, expect most to go where she is. My previous advice was contingent on you getting her, then caging her and leaving her in the new set up.

    Re: Swarm Hive(long) question

    If the sorry hive lost their queen, adding the frame with the queen cells will likely produce a queen.
