I installed two packages last week and not queen failed to escape the queen cage. I decided to forgo the direct release and now wish I didn't but what is done is done... Feel free to lecture me, this is my first time with packages (I started last year with nucs) and I am sure operator error was involved.

I would need two queen ASAP, anyone know where I can get some? I have called my local suppliers but this cold weather has evything slowed down and none are ready. Thanks!
