I happened to find the picture below buried within my computer by chance which I thought I would post to illustrate how you can get comb with brood from a feral colony and move it into a hive. This was a cut-out last autumn from a concrete box over some gas pipes. The comb was fixed into a standard DN4 open frame with masking tape; a week or so later you can see the masking tape is being chewed away and the wax has been attached to the wooden parts. The bees completed the comb a few weeks afterwards. As this was late in the season, they made no attempt to draw drone comb - it was all worker.

Don't see the picture!

(I uploaded one to FB and then clicked on it and copyed image url and added that inbetween the image tags you get clicking on the image. I checked it worked on a browser not logged in to fb and it did)

Me neither. Attaching images within the forum would be helpful.
