I have a hive out at Burra which is quite aggressive and needs to be re-queened.
I have just taken a few stings (30 or so) from it and clearly action is needed and it’s a two person job. Seeking an experienced volunteer to help find and kill queen and replace with a professionally bred one.
I used a LOT hessian smoke and it did not make much difference. Hive very productive and there will be about 8 full depth frames to be taken off it as well.
