I am making a split and want to keep the old queen in the top mediums and remove all the bottom deeps to introduce a new queen. If she is in the bottom deep and I want to put her in the upper mediums how do I do that without hurting her?

Well, you could pick her up by her wings between your thumb and index finger. Or just shake the bees off of the comb onto the top bars of the super in which you want her. It doesn't hurt the bees to do that to them.
