Do fresh hived(today is 3rd day) bees scent at the entrance of their hive,if they still have a queen? Local guy said its to early to tell.He said they are probablt scenting for the field workers.He said that if they havent drifted to the other hives ,then the queen is probably there.Our season is so shrt that i cant afford to make a mistake on this.I dont want to try and find the queen in a 5# package.They are clustered building comb. I did see the beginnings of a queen cell in on hive.I was hoping that maybe its just supercedure. Any help is appreciated!!!!!!!!! Thanks,mike
