How do you make a queen bee leave the nest?

The queen bee of a hive does not leave the nest by any means.

Without a queen bee, a hive simply cannot exist. If one were to

remove the queen bee, it would be a matter of hours before the hive

is in complete chaos. In the event the queen bee is about to die,

there is already a "lady-in-waiting" to take her place. In simpler

terms, the queen cannot be persuaded to leave. It is simply not in

their design.
