So I recently performed a cutdown split on my TBH. The new queen hatched a couple of week ago and ever since they have been washboarding. As long as the weather is decent enough to be on the front porch they sit out there going up and down. I know that the real reason for washboarding is unknown, but has anybody ever experienced it with these circumstances (new virgin queen)? Neither of my other 3 home hives are doing it. I just thought it was interesting and wanted to see if there was a particular circumstance where others have noted it.
