Hello, I am a 2nd year hobbist,trying to be beekeeper,with concerns on what to do: I ordered a new Itlian Queen back in Feb. in hopes of making my first split,with one of my double brood hives,and queen is due in the post office in the morning. "The problem is weather man is calling for rain tonight, tomorrow and Saturday, what can I do with the queen to keep her a live until the weather breaks? I done my second reverse on the hives a week ago, and cheeked the hive today and brood is in the bottom chamber with space and some honey in top of frames in the top brood chamber. I have a screen slatt board, and a queen excluder, and a empty new 5 frame nuc and new empty brood hive with new fondation wax for any ideas ? Was wondering if I caught a time in between rain, if I could separate the 2 brood hives with a queen excluder and go ahead and put the queen cage in the top middle frames of the top brood, and then put the screen slatt board on top of the top brood hive with little entrance door open facing the rear , opposite from bottom hive , and put the outter telecoping top cover over the the screen slatterr board , if this would work? for a quick fix , even though the brood would be in the bottom old hive. Any thoughts are advise,weather man says next pretty sunny day want be till sunday and queen was shipped out wednesday morn. Thanks.
