I have a weak hive that I have been nursing along since Feb. I gave them a couple of frames of brood and they have sucessfully raised a new queen, I will be going to look in on them tomorrow. Something I was curious about, if the bee population was down, would it be a wise idea to put the queen in a cage, then add some more bees and let them release her in a few days? I would hate to see that there wasn't enough bees to keep the brood warm.

if you want to add bees but not another frame of brood, do a search here for "drift divide" good luck,mike
