The older I get, the better I get at doing the right thing, letting it go, and lounging in my computer chair going, gee, I should do some work! Bees are plumb easy when you have been through as much as I have.

Half a cup of bees do not a hive make. She is a pretty little queen, I've picked her up, she returned to her chosen bees. There is fighting near the entrance of the hive, not a lot, seems the workers have divided. I have no clean free of disease comb to give them, if she is not mated and I shut them up will she mate properly? I do have plenty of sugar water. I can move them into a nuc and try to get them to stay. For now they are settled in for the night at ground level and I have penned my chickens
Otherwise known as an aha moment.
