The one that hurt me worse was the little indented cleft between the top lip and nose. If they had a crying icon here I would use it because it brought tears too my eyes..... literally.

You can release her into the queenless hives. They will accept an unmated queen.

I thought they would except an unmated queen I have seen Dwight porter do this. No tricks needed for a full blown hive either id? How long does the full blown hive need to be queenless? What about a nuc how long does it have to be queenlees for a virgin intro?

And last how long will the queen ive in a cage by herself not in a hive with no attendants? Not trying to take over your thread spear just a good learning opportunity grin

Yea they stay in roller cages in an incubator for a short period no problem but some folks think they can hold them over like quens shipped with attendants.... not! Thge swarm will leave anytime after the cell is capped usually around day eight. So that gives another 7 or so days for the queen to hatch and add two weeks to mate and lay. So depending on which of all the queen is there that emerged you may not spot her unless you are good at spoting virgin queens.

I'm sure this hive swarmed on the 1st of April. I was going to do an inspection when I saw the swarm settling in the grass a few meters away and down the hill from my 2 hives & when I got to my hives they were very restless and a lot of bees still outside the hive.
So today I was expecting to find a young queen in this hive but instead found all the queen cells (The 2 open cells were opened from the inside - hatched ) there was a fare amount of capped brood - couldn't take too much time inspecting and looking for eggs as the weather was getting real bad (started to rain a bit) so I had to close up in a hurry.
Two of the three cell I took home have hatched the 3rd is quiet - no sign of life yet. I saw the 1 queen feeding herself when I put a few drops of water on the feed candy so I hope that they will be ok until tomorrow at least then I can hang them into one of the hive at my mothers place.

 If your "queenless" hive is the one that the queen cells came out of, there may be a queen in there. I would put the new queens into mating nucs and let them take care of business. Give the "possible" queen in the hive time to mate and start laying. If the queens in the mating nucs start laying before you see any eggs in the hive, then add a nuc queen to the hive.

Last year my bees were real defensive.  One chased me about 50 tards and stung me on the neck just over the carotid artery.  I had a minimal reaction to that one.  I guess we're all just trying to understand this sting thing.  Something we all have in common LOL

I have say I've learned a lot since I got on this forum.  There's a world of knowledge here.  Thanks, Beemaster, for hosting us.
