A friend in our club ordered a bunch of queens and had a couple left over. They have been in a battery box for about 6 days now. It is raining today so it will probably be another day before I can get them into a split. Think after 7 days of traveling/sitting she will be okay?

If they're still alive and haven't been chilled - they have a good chance of being okay. If they were chilled, there might be a problem. Consider that not all queens are 100%, even those that are introduced immediately.

It's also nearly impossible to know, if or when a queen will fail. So, queen producers can do their best work, and factors outside their control can still spoil the product.

Scary as we are still wet and cold. Hopefully they will be ok.
