    Ok, could not wait, loaded up the gear and went to work, comb came out in 5 foot strips no joke and never saw the queen but did get alot of eggs and young brood, when I took them out to the new yard and put the box on a bottom board and a cover on it the bees were fanning at the entrance so I hope she is in there, 5 frames of eggs, larva, and capped brood with 2 of food.:cool:

    Looks like I need to move a little farther south! I have only done two removals this year and no swarms. I'm beginning to go into withdrawals.

    Looks like it was a nice one.
