    Default Keeping Queen Til Spring

    I guess I will concede to losing a hive this winter. I have a new queen in the hive. Is there anything I can do to keep this queen alive until spring to use her in a spring split?

    can you put her and some bees on top of another colony with their winter feed?

    I might try putting her in an observation hive in your house with the compliment of bees she is with....and give them an entrance/exit...
