    Default will vigin find her way out and back in robbing screen?

    I started a late nuc. queen is due to hatch in about a week. I am putting a robbing screen on tonight. I just made it, the bees will have to come out and climb up and out the opposite side. do you think the virgin queen will maneuver through the robbing screen and back in. I know it was probably a little too late to start a nuc, but I didn't get as many swarm calls as I thought I would. I have plenty of capped sugar syrup to feed them

    I've done it quite a few times and it doesn't seem to hurt at all.
