Wondering if a beek should put some worker bees in with queens when shipping or transporting in queen cages to outyards??
During hot weather what is the safe way to transport queens?
Sold a caged queen to a beek today and she was healthy and laying well and was very active until he got home with her and he said he thought she had died (was in the 90's today). I think he kept her in his car after he bought her for several hours before going home to put her in his colony but kept windows partially down.
It sounds like the heat cooked her, I did not cage any workers with her would it help the queens if I did?
