Here is my situation. I have a queen-less hive with a strong laying worker (meaning lots of drone brood in full patterns) that has lots of bees, yes drones, but plenty of strong Russian workers too.
I have a nuc that has a really good queen in it but only two frames of brood and is just getting going. Good genes, good brood queen, beautiful brood, but few bees. This queen-right hive is right next to the Laying worker hive. My plan is to take the laying worker hive 100 feet away, move the queen-right hive into the spot where the laying worker hive was and then go empty out the laying worker hive down the hill from the apiary. My thinking is that most of the workers will fly back to their former location, find the now queen-right hive and join it relatively seamlessly.
Opinions on the plan?
