We just never know with bees, unless we can SEE that queen in the box...Friends, there were so many bees I find it hard to think they came from my hive.  Who knows?  There is still a cluster on the side of the box.  hhhhhhmmmm  I did spritz them pretty good with syrup though.

How big is the cluster on the side? I once got bees into a box and later found a small cluster of bees on the ground. They were still there the next day. Turned out to be a queen in the cluster. Might make sure the queen isn't in that cluster.

The majority of the bees are in the hive body.  I would say that 1/5 of the bees are on the side of the box.  I just looked...How can I check to see if the queen is there.  Do I have to get a stick and move them around? 

It isn't over til the fat queen is in... Undecided

Shoot, I dont know how you could look for the queen....I've NEVER seen mine yet since the day i put them in the box!
 I think what i would do at this time is use the dustpan to catch the bees onto and put the bees in the top of the box.
I found that for me, sugar syrup was important in making the bees stick together for easier handling.

Not seeing the amount for myself, can you get a plastic container, spray the small cluster, and then put them in the hive with the rest of them?

I should have left well enough alone. When I lifted the top off to pour the other bees in, more bees dropped out, now there are 2 clusters on the outside of the box...

I am now officially finsihed...

Will report back in am!

John

Be nice now. She doesn't have a rain cloud over her head, only a swarm cloud!!!

I have to hand it to you Sharon, I probably would have gone through the same thing.

Good Luck

Bravo for all your efforts!  You should at least get some good Karma for trying so hard.  Hope they're still there in the morning!
