Well I had placed the new queen cage into the hive, took out the cork a day or two later that was on the 4th, so released her today and she flew off. Well Michael Bush has a post either on here or on his site, maybe both, that says to stand still and she will orient on you. Well a few minutes later saw her walking on one of the coffee cans that the legs of the stand are in and she promptly fell into the can that had oil and water (mostly water from rain), fished her out and placed her on top of the frames and she went down in between the frames.
The oil was vegetable oil do you think it will hurt anything, I'm hoping they will clean her up and she will get to laying.

OK thanks for the advice, I hope she's good. New at keeping bees, and really enjoying my bees.
