I think you did right by shaking the laying worker frames. I think you could go ahead and open the entrance. I battled a laying worker hive a couple of years ago. I took the frames about 200 to 300 feet away and shook them hoping the layer wouldn’t know the way back to the hive. After that I requeened and she did fine.

You said you threw out the frames - save them for later, they will still be usable.

Hope this helps!
