    Default Trap out question

    I've never attempted a trap-out but am going to be trying them this up and comming year. My question is this. Does the queen come out through the cone after awhile or does she not ? i would guess that she does not, but have found two different opinions/findings? on the net. Can anyone set me straight?

    I've never seen one though I've been told that on occasion she will leave as the hive obsconds. I definately do not count on it.

    well , it wouldn't be a total loss if i had the queen cells and brood to add. at least i could get the bees.

    Yes I start with a frame of brood with bees and eggs, I did one this summer and got 4 nuc boxes of bees and the frames with eggs made queens so 4 new hives from one trap out
