Locating the queen on thought to be queenless starter hive

 - Day1 - Introduced a queen in a cage with a cork plug, she was alive on day three and the same color but smaller. - Day3 - replaced plug with marshmallow. - Day6 - she was no where to be found. Capped queen cells were present, left a few, applied some feed and closed it up. Including the time span between day 3 and day 6 - this check was done 27 to 30 days later.

what yah think?

yes, I'm happy it worked it out  Smiley

For those that maybe questioning the location, for now I'm not too worried about it, as it offers some protection. I do have some in direct sun but wind could be a problem there. I'll deal with it either way. this was the best picture I could currently up with.
