Problem solved . . . sorta.
I drove out to TN last friday and bought five hives from a guy that was getting out of the bus. Today I opened them up to check them out, grabbed a frame of nurse bees, and shook them into the OH. I walked away to check on the rest of the hives. When I came back about 10 min later, the queen was dead as a doorstop. Those nurse bees were not interested in her staying alive, and were all over her body stinging her. There were too few of her attendants to save her. Kinda sad to watch.
So I just took the queen from one of the other hives, put her in the OH, then combined the rest with the weakest hive I had.
In hindsight, I guess I should have taken the nurse bees away from their queen for a day or two before I put them into the OH, but I was afraid with the outdoor temps they wouldn't have lasted through the night.
