Re: Wisconsin warre attacked by bear
Ya it sounds like you read about my ordeal, but my have had a nice sizable cluster at the hive location. About the size of a volleyball maybe a tish smaller. I attached what comb I had left (very little) and shook all the bees in. I made sure they had some feed. After about a week I did as beedeetee did and checked them out. I have half frames so I had some inspectability. I saw eggs and a queen so I am good to go. If you cannot remove any comb then look for queen cells. I would say that it is likely that they will have some partial comb that should be removable easily enough. It's really the fully drawn comb that is impossible. If you can see eggs then you are in business. Hope that helps!
