Re: Queen and 5 workers, need advice quick please!
I had something similar a few weeks ago and here's what I did. I took a frame of brood and its bees from a different hive and used a 2"x 2" push in #8 screen cage over capped brood with queen, along with 2 other frames of brood and bees and put it in a different place in the yard. It's a small starter but I'm keeping an eye on it and it's doing ok. I don't know if you have these kinds of things handy to try something like this. I thought of doing what you describe here but I was too chicken that the bees from added hive would kill the queen. You have to have bees in the hive to take care of everything, not just brood and a few bees with a queen--if I'm understanding your question.
