I direct released this queen after 7 days. The bees were all over her immediately. I expected them to make way for her to go wherever she wanted, but they were crawling on top of her and knocking her over. She just stood their. On close inspection they were not biting, but licking her with their tounges. As more and more bees crawled over her, I got nervous and went to grab her, but she suddenly took off. This told me that she was likely staying still of her own accord and not because the bees were holding her down. I grabbed her wings and put her on a comb and the bees started interacting with her like they normally do with a queen. I took a picture. She has a green mark. Has anyone seen this type of behavior?
