:) yesterday, i tried sucking a hive out of a block wall with my fancy self built beevac. oh and they were getting sucked in and the ones that were coming back from foraging they had a little surprise, they got sucked in. i was having a grand ole time, then the gas generator vapor locked and my suction ended. i opened it up but all i had were a bunch of angry bees, no queen, and they flew back to the hive. they had a great story to tell the other bees, of how they got sucked out of the hive, down this long tube and the stupid bk had to release us anyway and he left with his tail between his legs. yep if you don't catch the queen you might not as well even try. cheers:)
