    And she's a good layer, full frames. Bees are good honey producers. Too hot to be where I have them. I split the hive to requeen, but somehow she got in my nuc, based on the rate of her bees marching in to join her. I can't find her. But she is a prolific layer, mutt stock from a sprinkler box removal last year, open-mated daughter.

    Pick up in Fort Worth, TX, bring your own deep nuc box with lid, bottom board (or a jester ez nuc), and I will put in frames with all bees and we will assume she is in there. They're feeding her, she's about to start laying again, lol. Price - you bring own nuc, $50. I provide jester nuc with frames and bees: $75

    I started 2 dual box nucleus hives with her workers and brood, trying to find her.

    they don't all attack like a real bad hive, just the occasional ding, until you steal their honey, that took 3 days recovery. But I wouldn't put on my back porch.

    So I sold my hot queen with her nuc, and her bees were feeling nervous here. Moved 30 miles south, the beekeeper messaged me yesterday, he could have worked the hive barehanded.
