Got a call for a colony in a house. The dryer vent. Supposedly there about 30 days. Moved in on old comb from prior years. They didn't want the house opened, just remove the bees. After some discussion, I decided I wasn't all that interested, so I used it for an experiment I have been thinking about. I filled the hole up with about 6 good squirts of Bee-Go. The bees went berserk. Went back this morning about 9 AM just in time to see the queen land on a bush and the rest piling on. I put the queen in a hive and a queen/drone fence on front. Hopefully the queen is trapped inside. The swarm joined her. I set the box just outside the house opening.
Question??? Will they now carry the honey from the house to the box, or will they build a new queen from an egg or larva inside the house?
