Sounds like a fun time Bill - I know I have went into the hive with good intentions and before you know it, I do something stupid and agrivate them big time. I find it best to retreat and rethink a better plan.
The worse incident in resent years was forcing a frame back in the hive AFTER it had been out about a week - I just plain forgot I had removed it. When I went to PUSH it back in place, it wouldn't fit (dummy here) starts tapping the frame down with the handle end of a hammer THINKING it might not distrub them as much - I was a sorry looking thing by time THAT frame was back in the hive.
Sounds like everything will be fine though - keep us posted on finding the queen but look for young larva and eggs too - finding the queen isn't always necessary, but always sweet to find!!!
