    Default Temporary Observation Hive Stay?

    I took out the frame with the queen yesterday from a small hive and put her into my observation hive for a school presentation today. I plan on using the obseratory just for 1 day. Will the hive accept her and the frame back after being out for 24 hours? Options? Thanks

    Generally yes. Although with beekeeping, nothing is absolute.

    Make sure you go through the hive and destroy any queen cells before you put her back.

    I do it often and have not observed any problems.
