Hi all -- I made first split 3 days back (bees from two hives), adding a queen in a queen cage. Checked just now and the queen is out. Interesting thing is the three attendents (guessing it's them) are dead in there, one of them with a stinger in it's noggin. Smiley

The hive is quiet, all the bees are still there building brace comb and frame comb. I'm guessing all is well. Any concerns?

Blessings,
John Schwartz

it's pretty common for the attendants to get killed.  Usually before the queen gets released.
