Re: Nurse bees without finding the Queen?
When trying to find the Russian queens that I got rid of last year, I added an extra box below the brood chamber with 5 frames of empty comb leaving plenty of room for all the bees. I then ran them all down one box at a time with a fume board using beego, then put an excluder and all the bees came back up except a few and the queen. I know that the=is is not the same situation, I just thought you might be able to work something like this. Good Luck!!
So much to learn, so little time!!
