Problem is, I have Langstroths and the new one is a top bar. I would split, but a square peg is not going to fit into a round hole.
Ideas on how to get some bees to live with her in there? Do suppliers sell bees without queens? I've looked over Kelley's site. Nothing I can find. Any ideas welcome.
I ordered a queen and now discovered a new queen in my "queenless" hive!
Remove a brood frame from your lang (one with eggs or uncapped brood). Cut the comb from the frame and attach it to your top bar with wax. Lay it in your lang hive and let the nurse bees re-populate it, then move it to your tbh.
