Well who ever said they have never been stung I just do not want to hear from you LOL !!!! Everything going as planned today hiving my bees. After hiving bees and closing down the hatch I realized the cork was still in the Queens cage. At this point only stung twice " I can live with that as a learning experience ". Returned to hive to remove Queen and cork and it then turned into a swarm. Unfortunately I was unable to remove the cork and finally had to push the cork inside the cage and caulk with a marsh mellow. I hope this works because I have five additional war wounds due to my mistake. I also had several hundred bees outside the top feeder making it impossible for me to close the hive. After dark I was able to work most of the girls and boys to the entrance of the hive then filled the feeder 1/2 full with sugar water. WOW what a experience !!!!!!
