Hi There,

Was wondering if I needed to shake off the bees from a frame of Brood,Larvae,Eggs when putting it into a different hive? I used this great method of checking for a queen when I thought one of my hives was queenless by adding a frame of eggs and brood and then checking 3 days later for queen cells. Every time I did this I shook off the bees and was wondering if that was neccessary? Would those nurse bees be accepted in the new hive if I left them on the frame and would they want to be accepted? (-: Thanks for your input!
