I think brac might be on to something. I've noticed the same thing with a newly mated queens and also a newly released queen. So now I try not to mark the queens untill they have been laying for a few months and so far I have not had them ball the queen when I put her back after marking.

If you notice this happening again get the bees off of her and make a push in queen cage. Leave her in it for a couple of days and you should be ok after they calm down. I have done this in the past and it worked like a charm.
