If you can cut comb and make it fit onto your top bars, then it'll go easy.

If you cannot.... then I'd suggest getting the queen in a hair clip, then moving the bees over by hand. They will not want to abandon their brood. At 14 days you shouldn't have too much brood to deal with from a swarm (takes about 10 days to begin laying)

Leave the queen in the hair clip for a couple days while the bees set up shop in their new home. 1:1 syrup doesn't hurt either.


Good luck
Mark
