What if the queen escapes early?
I just installed my first package of bees on Saturday. The queen was in a cage by herself and there was a cork only on one end. I pulled the cork out and replaced it with a mini marshmallow, but now (of course) I'm second guessing how well I did it. I'm worried I didn't push the marshmallow in enough and that she'll escape today instead of on Thursday or Friday if the marshmallow is loose and falls out or something. Do I need to worry about that kind of thing or is it a pretty unreasonable "newbie" fear? If she escapes today (or even yesterday) will all of the other bees just kill her?
If God doesn't want us to eat animals, why did He make them out of meat?
