I just found out the hard way that when you are using a queen cage to requeen your hive, make sure that you get the frame adjacent it good and snug.  Otherwise the cage pops open and the new queen is toast. Sad   I saw a queen cell already started dont know if I should try to requeen again or take my chances on potluck.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
