    it would be just as simple to use a leaf blower and blow the bees out. Then your handling the boxes and not the frames. You can also pretty much get all the bees out if you want to

    I tried a small battery blower, but it didn't get many bees, the gas ones have 5x the velocity.
    na, blow into the grass infrount of the hive, and they will march back in
