    Default newbe bee keeper i hope

    I have bees in a hole in the tree.the land owner was going to spray them but i talked him into letting me to try to get them out.if i do not get the Queen how quick should buy a Queen and try to Queen them.i can not cut the tree so i am going to put a nuke box up at the hole and make a funnel to put over the hole.is there any way to get all them out? I built a top bar hive to put them in if i can get them

    Welcome to Beesource!

    Hopefully you can wait until the weather warms up. It needs to be warm enough for the bees to be flying consistently if you expect a trapout to work.

    You may find these threads useful:

    You can send your email to Cleo Hogan (see the second thread) for a copy of his trapout guide.

    If this worked it should be 2 hives 2 nuke boxes and the top bars
    it is all made with scrap wood so they might not look to good but i think they will work.and it is less wood in the dump

    Some Beesource member make the built in photo attachment feature work for them, but for me and some others, it much simpler to upload photos to a free host like Photobucket.com, then link to those photos here at Beesource. Depending on the link style you choose, photos can be displayed here either inline in your message or as a clickable link.
