Quick Queen Release

I had a banked queen - one that I didn't have a home for right away. It is important to get the queens in a hive and let them do what they do best...Lay eggs.

The attendants had chewed through the candy plug and she got out. I caught her in a queen marking cage. I needed her to get into a hive as soon as possible. I made a small queenless split for her new home. After they were queenless for 24 hours, I wanted to see if they would accept her.

Remember, bees can't read or have YouTube. You need to watch them and see how they react. (Yes, I do read books and will continue to do so. The experience of others is important)
