I left the hive there inside the porch with all the brood comb rubber banded inside, I never saw a Queen, I guess they can make another if she didn't survive. I'm hoping they'll all be in it in the morning early.
Did have any issues with the bees not using the rubber banded comb after the cut-out? Since you rotated it 90 degrees the orientation of the comb would have been different from how they had built it...
