Re: Bee Escape Not Working
The odd queen will get through a queen excluder, but if she's up there, you should see some brood in the supers. If there's brood, the bees won't leave. I had a queen get through the Cloake Board last Summer and tear down 10 beautiful queen cells.

I want bees that make up for my mistakes.
