I installed a package for the first time 3 days ago. When i looked in the queen cage the queen was curled up but was moving, I installed figuring they might be feeding her or something. I came back 2 days later and the queen was dead and not released yet. i brought the queen cage inside and corked it. I bought the package at Miller Bee Supply. Im going there later to see if i can get a new queen. The bees with the dead queen are still alive, think theyll replace it? Anyone had this same problem with Miller Bee Supply? How long will those bees live without a queen? Thanks in advance.
p.s I only have one hive so adding brood is not an option.
