    Oops I did something really dumb. I keep my important paperwork in my old van. And I put 3 full supers in there till I get a chance to extract.
    I pulled them out to get at some papers, then forgot for awhile, came back and yup 1000's of bees. I put them in the van but there are heaps of been in there and many many more trying to get in/out and it's a '72 VW so chances are good they'll find a hole...
    Aside from waiting till evening to re-open the door and let them escape back to hives- any other ideas??

    Thanks, not sure why I didn't consider this first. Got the bees out as darkness came and put a garbage bag over them. I gotta get on extracting here!
