    This was on a truck in a used car dealers lot. Someone was wanting to test drive the truck :lol:

    Love watching them march into the box.

    That was too easy..............no ladder, no rope, no bucket on a pole.........

    Glad you got them put up!

    Did you see the queen go marching in?

    I found the queen yesterday.

    She is very small, I actually had look at her more than once. It's no doubt a queen.

    Could it be a virgin queen, do they swarm?

    Didn't have phone. I'll try and get one. But in the mean time, here is a picture of one on my brand new queens. Had a cut out and did not get the queen. Shae hatched out 2 weeks ago and I finally looked in the hive this weekend and aw here.

    Good pic. Queens can be quite small for a while, even after they have initially gone out for mating flights. Shortly after that they tend to "plump up" a bit.
