    The queen is in the bottom box then a queen excluder, they heavily smoke the bottom and most bees go up into the top box or boxes then they shake those boxes into the funnel stand. The queen stays in the bottom box.

    In the video they clearly state that the queens in all their hives are under excluders, so the finding of queens has already been done. So the yards must be prepared before hand some time before the shaking of packages. Trying to shake bees through a queen excluder will maybe give you 10 packages a day.
