Well, my first package in a while. Installed it in a deep with drawn out frames and hung the queen cage inside. Put a hivetop feeder on FULL and it's about gone (Installed bees Saturday).
My mistake... I forgot to remove the cork from the Queen Cage. There is a queen and several attendant bees. What is my next step? They've been installed for 3 1/2 days now. Should I go remove the cork and let it go for a few more days, or just release the queen at the end of the week (or sooner)?? Is this a BAD Mistake?
