Today I got a phone call from beekeeper store saying some tree company found bees in the tree that was cut off in half. So I went and got all the bees. When they cut it in half they did some pretty good damage to it. I was able to get about the size of cantalupe of bees. I am not sure if queen is still there but I would think so. They all seemed to gether inside the branch. I looked on the ground to see if she was one of the dead but didn't see it, but it still doesn't mean she's alive or dead. Today was kind of chilly day outside and Friday should be in high 50s and I want to move them from the branch to the top bar hive, cause that's what I have. When I'll move them to the TBH and don't see the queen, what should I do? I am not even sure what kind they are, but they seem pretty dark in color.
