introducing....the new queen

This queen cage has no hanger on it. So trusty assistant makes
a frame to set on the brood box just thick enough to put th
e cage on top of the frames. They were on the cage before I let go of it! Wow! That hole on the end is only large enough for one bee at a time to go in and eat a little of the sugar candy that is blocking that end of the cage. At this point they are trying to reach the queen to kill her. By the time they do reach her they more than likely will accept her as their queen. So again we cross our fingers and hope for the best.
