Re: queen flew away. Now what?
She's a virgin queen doing the mating deal. Don't be surprised if she's not in there during the afternoon. I learned that the hard way. I jumped the gun thinking that it was a failure and put another hive in place of one. She was out on her flight. They balled her on entry and killed her.
Look for her after 7 pm mine i've observed are home by then. I'm within rock throwing distance of you. If for whatever reason it fails I may have a queen to spare. Planning on raising a few more in a couple weeks or so.
A mated queen will have eggs in some cells in your case and longer and fatter. If she mated out of that hive and just happened to fly off. She will know how to get back.
Don't laugh it's paid for. -- Manure draws more flies than honey.
