Hi, All! I recently bought 2 queens to introduce them into 2 hives that I made queen less.
I wrapped the frames all over in #8 wire cloth with lots of hatching bees that was capped.
My question is how long do I wait to release them out of the cage?
With one frame that has not many young nurse bees, do I add more bees into it OR just leave them bee for now?
I just want to know when can I unwrap the frame to release them. The other bees are clinging to the wire frame too.

Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
