    To the best of my knowledge, with the exceptions of mating flights, swarming, and absconding, the queen never leaves. Nor does she venture outside, even to walk around on a hot summer night.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
