Re: Advice help
Do you know where the brood is, which box? Do you have any other hives.?
Any box that does not have brood you can just set aside and the bees will go back to the main hive. If more than one box has brood you can split with these boxes on the bottom. Next year, spring, you pull them out because they will be empty. Some have used a thin spacer and a piano wire to slice the burr comb between boxes. A little smoke might drive the queen down so she doesn't get hurt while you are slowly slicing.
