My granddaughter is such a help!  We were told about bees in a trash can. We lifted the plywood lid and saw a small hive.  My girl got the nuc, the rubber bands, and the frames ready.  When she was ready she said, “Ok grandpa let’s get the girls.”‘ I moved the top to where she had the frames and cut them out.  She put them in the frames and put the rubber bands around them.  Then she wanted to smoke them into the nuc so we could move it to where the hive had been originally. She has the technic down! she used just little puffs of smoke to get them to move from the table to the nuc. Then when most of the bees had landed on the nuc she smoked them into the box so we could close it and get them home.  She did good.
