Re: can laying workers kill a laying queen in a combine?
Shake the laying hive out on the ground about 50 ft. away.Put the hive boxes where the bees can't get to them. Try to work the frames into other hives or what ever. The bees that are not laying workers will be excepted into the other hives. If your in the far south you can shake them out,put a queen in and the bees will fly back to the hive. Some say it don't work but it did for me.
Before man took over bees there was nature,it did a better job.
