    After the old queen is removed from the hive, not squished. How long before you can remove the tape from over the candy of the new queen cage thats put inside the hive? I waited about 2-hours, now i'm worrying about it.

    I have removed the tape prior to putting the queen cage inside the hive. It generally takes several days to eat through the candy plug.

    I remove the paper right away and place the queen inside the hive. If the hive has been queenless for a few days then I also punch a small hole with a small nail to help the bees let her out.
