So. I made a rookie mistake. Was going through my hive and somehow managed to find the queen which i never see. I had a medicine bottle in my truck so i set her in it and ran to thw house for a paint marker and returned with it. I got her out of the bottle and set her on an empty frame on my tailgate about 25ft from the hive. (1st mistake should have used a brood frame as i dont have a proper cage for marking and did it over her hive) well as soon as she hit the frame she flew off in the opposite direction of her hive. Her hive was sitting open at the time. Whats the probability she will return to her hive? There was fresh egga so they can make a new queen but she was a good 1.
