Re: Need advice about getting bee in my hive!
If the water meter bees have built comb, then they likely also have brood. Its very unlikely that you will be able to "lure" them out of the water meter. The best you could do with a lure and nearby empty hive is to catch a possible swarm from the parent hive in the meter box. But that might take much longer than the meter reader is willing to wait!
