Yesterday I brushed worker bees into two mating nucs and placed queens still in their hair roller cage into each nuc. I placed the nucs in a closet overnight with entrances closed. Today I placed each nuc outside let the queens out of the hair roller cages and opened the entrances to the nucs. Both queens were larger than any other virgin queens I have seen in the past with long abdomens almost as if they already had mated. One of the queens was piping away. The other queen had wings that did not look quite right it appeared they could be deformed or damaged. Later today this queen along with the workers had absconded from the mating nuc. There were less workers in this nuc than the other but still probably enough to take care of the queen. I looked around and could not find the queen so maybe she could fly even through the wings did not look right. I guess it would have been better if the queens had emerged out of their cells in the mating nucs instead of in the cell builder. Maybe that would have prevented the one queenand bees from absconding.
