    Is the branch they are on pretty big? If so, can you throw a rope over it and pull a box up to them? Add a frame of brood to help.

    Re: Do bee escapes work in warm weather

    They've worked fine for me here in SC. Just used them a couple weeks ago with mid 90's highs, and mid to upper 60's lows. Had a dozen or so bees left in each super after 1 day.

    Nice batch jwcarlson. I've been rotating in a frame or two of mixed brood (mostly capped though) each week. Haven't run in to a laying worker problem yet, but I did miss a queen cell last time....
