East Texas Pine Rooter·
I have a lot of bees that i got this past april without a queen in a hive. i put a new queen in a cage, hung from a wire 2-3 weeks ago. the first thing i did was that i uncorked the sugar end before i put her in the hive. i put the cage in the middle in between capped brood. i checked on her progress yesterday, the bees were nasty, flew all over my suit, one got inside my hood, and stung me on my forehead. that wasn't to bad. the queen was no where to be found, and there weren't any eggs. i had put a new foundation in the lower hive when i put the queen in and added another super. they haven't started drawing on it. i am going to order another queen next week. what can i do different? i am getting desperate.
