You can put a half mini marshmallow in the hole in place of the cork that they can eat through to release her. Good luck!There is no candy in the end of cage, only corked off.
I've had good luck direct releasing queens spraing HBH on the queen and the frame I put her on. I've done this four times, lost one queen right on the spot. Before I could spray her and the frame, a bee attacked her and stung her in the neck and killed her. Now I spray both BEFORE I put her on the frame. I do the same thing if I go back to a cage to see if they've been released, if not, I'll spray HBH and open the cage.If you make up a nuc, let it set for 2 days, then introduce a queen, can she be direct released or should you leave the queen cage capped a couple days before pulling out the cork?.
