Okay all you smart people, I need some ideas. I want to re-start my OB hive and don't know the best way. I am planning on putting a frame of eggs, brood, bees from a strong outside hive in the OB but did not have any luck with letting them requeen last year (I got several queens but the survivor never went on a mating flight and then got "taken out" herself) My hive is vertical, 2 deeps and 1 super. I'm not sure how to introduce a queen (a cage won't work cause I'd have to go back and remove it and can't do that without opening the whole thing). Same with push-in cages. Should I introduce her through the food chamber or use Glade or Pledge (I've seen that tip but it seems scary to put chemicals in there). Any better ideas?
