Hi, All! I will be receiving a new queen bee soon. And have read up on the different methods to introduce the
new queen into a hive. Seems like everybody use different ways to do it that works in their situation.
Don't want the queen to get kill again this time. Hive already queenless for 2 weeks now with more field bees than the
young bee. No brood or larvae in the hive now.
My question is after I put the queen in the hive, how long should I wait to check on the queen before releasing her into the hive? Do I have to wait for certain days or just release her to test like the bees willingly to feed and accept her on the first try?
Is there a best method over another? Any experiences or pointers would be very helpful.
