    Cool! I have never had one that easy. How did you know the queen was on that stick? Did you just happen to see her? you must have better eyes than me!

    Old timer told me about that trick. I had a 50 / 50 shot she was up on that tiny limb. so I broke it off, lifted it up to the box, and dropped it on top of the frames real slow. And Sha Zam, I saw her go in the box down the frame.

    I put the top on and waited for the rest to happen. They were hungry too.
    So far they are filling up 8 frames working hard too.

    Nice. I'm starting to get removal calls here in southeast PA - not long before the swarm calls start coming in!
