Good advice i see isnt always good.
Well a week ago I finally gave up on a hive when I found laying workers. I have been told and read about just shaking the bees on the ground somewhere away from the original location and let them find a new home. Well... it didnt work. There are 2 hives near the shaken hive's stand. As expected this is where the bees decided to fly to. Both queens were gone and supercedure cells are being drawn 4 days after.
I also tried shaking a queenless hive in front of another hive a while back Same thing happened.... queen is gone so I newspapered a NUC over them. I havnt checked to see if that worked.
