I have a hive I've had in my garage wall for about 6 years. I haven't raised bees in over 20 years but I'd like to try and remove this hive and hopefully save the hive in the wall into a 9 5/8s langsworth style box I just made. I did used to remove hives from walls and hollow trees years ago when I raised bees. Plan number one is to put the box full of frames and foundation on the wall with a opening for the bees to enter and another opening going into a 2" hole in the the wall where the active hive is. Do you think the queen will move into the new Langsworth [sp] style super or will I have to tear off a sheet of plywood to expose the hive and brood and move most all of it into blank frames with rubberbands? Hopefully I can keep the hive in the wall and get a new one in the box I just made wait a while and do it again. I have done so with hollow trees years ago. They would make new queens. Any help and suggestions will be appreciated BIGTIME. Dakine.
