Hey - that's a good looking queen. Looks a little confused though. ;)
How'd ya know she was confused Bill??? :shock:
I released her in the set up and she walked in and down so things were cool, then shook the bees in, all three boxes worth.
They looked fine and I was picking up and checked on 'em and whoah, a cluster on the fence next to the hive.
Had to move in, catch her and cage her, amongst about 1500 bees, could have been much worse though, say 20,000 on the fence!!
Thank goodness they hadn't really noticed she had left the hive, yet.
I think she left cause it was very warm out and perhaps a little honey dripped on her.
