Re: How to Save the Queen
Sure, if you have another booming hive then add a couple of frames with the bees
attached into this dwindling hive. Make sure these frames have the newly emerged fuzzy
bees with them. Or another option is to switch the hive position with
another booming hive with lots of foragers. Just before the sunset when all the bees are
inside their hive, swap the bee hive with the stronger hive. Make sure that the dwindling hive is
at the same location of the strong hive. In the morning the foragers will be hovering over the dwindling hive
and some will get inside too. If there is a concern about foragers returning to the strong hive then move it
further away from the dwindling hive at another location nearby.
Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
