FYI. Package bees are not available in my region.
Does anyone think that it is possible to start a hive using only a queen bee and it's attendants (purchased queen).
Additional workers would be acquired by catching them at work (on flowers) and placing them in a sealed hive. The bees would be fed with a feeder.
Would kidnapped bees from other hives work in a new hive if they can't leave.
PS. They would have to build their own comb from virgin foundation as well.
