I gave a bee lecture at the local county fair and a couple came up and asked if I could help them. They have lived in a house with a barn for the past 8 years and the barn has always had bees since they moved there. ("The bees are coming out of several holes now.") I asked them if they were willing to have me cut out the boards of the barn so I could remove all of the comb and hopefully get the queen. There may be multiple hives in the barn. If I am able to get the comb tied into frames, is this too late in the season or should I just tell them that I will do the cut out in the Spring?? Also, where is a good source on how to do the cut out? After the cut out and installation in a hive, do I leave the hive around for a day or two to pick up any straggler bees? After I tie the comb in, do the bees eventually connect the comb to the frames so I can cut the strings?
