    Default Queen introduction

    When introducing a mated queen do you point the candy down, up, or sideways?

    I installed mine up for the same reason mentioned above. I opened the hives today and this is what I found! A good site to see!



    Both hives with an empty queen cage was a good first site!

    Mrgb
    Every one devlpoes different ways to do things, in my (weak) mind with the screen down the bees feed well and sideways there is less chance of the opening becomeing blocked.

    just my 2
