Allen F -
sorry, missed the other question. Yes, she can get out...the cork is out, its not blocked. Couldn't get the candy end cork out and was afraid to push it into her cage to open the hole and possibly hurt her, so I took the cork out of the other end.
I've probably disturbed them enough as the other commentator noted, so I will just pull the screen off tomorrow if she's still in there. I just found it odd that she was inside and the workers were going in and out. It didn't seem that they were attacking her and she was pretty placid. She is already mated and was laying per the seller.
These bees are really very gentle. I opened each time without any smoke and kept the visit brief-- just long enough to pull the cage up and see her. (No smoke because, quite frankly, it gives me an asthma attack each time.)
Thanks for the replies.
