Hello

   I have just received my new queen today but the weather is raining and a little cool. I would like to know if i should go ahead and put her in without checking for more queen cells they say that the rain is to stop and clear off today here but i looked at my queen and she seems to be eating at the candy in the cage she only have two workers living and they are moving slow so i gave them some syrup and water which they took up fast if i can't get in in there today how can i keep her alive until tomarrow i do not want to lose her.

If the rain doesn't stop until tomorrow I'd keep feeding her sugar water or syrup.  I assume your hive still has a queen; otherwise wouldn't it be ok to put her in now?... I would destroy the cells (if any) before I put her in if I could.

  If she's eating the plug of sugar, couldn't you make a cake of maybe sugar syrup and powdered sugar or the like and keep it plugged till tomorrow??

Hello

    I went on and put her in i made sure all queen cells where destroyed which it was three and they were capped and after i did so i put the new queen in and they went right to her as if they knew she was mated and ready to lay they were not trying to sting her i also saw drone cells capped and i opened some of them and found no sign of mites so i will wait till saturday to see if she is out and has been excepted. Thank you for your help they are out working and some pollen i hope this works if not then they will have to make thier own and raise her.

Hello

     I have not had the chance to check on my new queen i just got out of the hospital yesterday. It seems my blood sugar has gone thru the roof 382 so i have to be careful and my vision is not so good but i am going in both of them soon. but they have been working real well and i know i have a mess in this hive but i will keep you all informed.
