Last year when we got our packages, the queen bee was in a little box with two holes and a candy plug and she had a couple attendants. The release went fine.
This year I just have little box with the queen bee and a cork plug. I can't find any information on how to release her or care for her until she is released. Will the other bees feed her through the cage? Do I just give her a couple days and then pull out the cork? Will they eventually chew through the cork?
