Can anyone tell me there results with introducing queens with attendants included? I have done so before with ok results but I usually get them by themselfs from a local supplier. Im hoping they are excepted like the last ones I got.
I would still appreciate some advice or how you go about removing attendants from cage without losing queen. Im sure you just get er done but if there is any tricks I would like to know for next time around. Im a bit uncomfortable with the idea. Do the attendants like to sting readily? Im thinking you could make some kind of contraption so you could let one bee come out at a time into another cage or something, release it if its not the queen and when the queen comes out you keep her in it and then let the rest out, then return the queen. I hope I dont lose most of em. Im very exited about these queens and cant wait to see how mite resistant they really are. I sure hope they are the real deal.
