Hello! Yesterday I went to install my first package of bees and had everything set up according to plan. After prying the can out of the box, I took the queen cage out and saw she was dead. The cage was without attendants, so I stuck it in my pocket and dumped the bees into the hive because by that time they were all crawling out and I would have squished them in the process of sticking the can back in. Anyway, I called for a new queen, luckily there were some extras, and was back at the hive 90 minutes later. First of all, the bees had all come back out of the hive and were resolutely clinging to all sides of the package, which I had leaned against the hive. As I approached with the new queen the scene turned a little chaotic. They clustered tightly around it and around me, clinging to my clothes and veil and were definitely pissed off. I installed the frightened queen but left the cork in on the candy end to give them a few days to become acquainted. This morning I checked and half of the bees had moved back into the hive, while the other half still clings to the box. I plan to go back on Tuesday (2 full days after hiving) and uncork the candy end of the cage. I'm just wondering if this is enough time? Should I expect the same nasty behavior and if so, should I smoke? I have my sprayer with some honey bee healthy mixed in, which was what I used on Sunday but it didn't subdue or distract them at all on the second visit.
