I've got some freshly-mated queens in mating nucs. Some of the nucs have dwindled to so few bees, that I'm worried about adding resources. I'm afraid the new bees might kill the queen. So I plan to mark the queens, cage them and then add resources, and let them release her. So the queens will never be outside a hive with bees for more than a few minutes.
So is there any need for attendants in the cage for this process?
