Next time you should remove the queen cage before dumping it and the bees into your awaiting hive. You don't want to risk injuring the egg layer! Have fun!

I cut a slot in the follower board to match the feeder. Also I bent the #8 screen up to touch the jar lid. The feeder is placed on the opposite side of the follower board from the bees.
The bees found the feeder right away.



I put the outside feeder about 200' away from the hive. The bees are really going after it.
