Re: Shook out hive to rid laying worker
Shaking out confuses the workers enough so that you can introduce a queen. Just sandwich her between two brood frames and keep her caged for a week - minimum. Sometimes it takes longer.
If you you have some open brood with eggs, you can give that to them like Mr. Bush usually recommends, and they will make a queen - hopefully. May take several frames.
A lot of commercial guys just do a newspaper combine with a queenright nuc. Sometimes they don't even use the newspaper. I have done it and it worked on several occasions, but it is risky.
