Hello to all

Do the queen get out of the hive with bee when they are Bearding ? or she never leave the hive entrance even in hot nights .

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.
