Here's what I have. A 5 frame nuc that I have is now confirmed with laying workers. The queen flew off after I had found her and a fistfull of bees under the nuc box. I saw eggs a few days later when I checked it but now see that they are drone only and now I am beginning to see multiple eggs. I actually picked up a spare queen today for another possible reason but am wondering if there is some way I can get her accepted by this nuc, or do I count my losses, make up another nuc and just shake this one out. Years ago I tried the old 100 feet away shake out and had the frames and a new queen awaiting those that made it back and it did work but I am told this is the exception. Seems to me you would lose any nurse bees as well, how would they know where home is? Any advice, the new queen is sitting in my kitchen cupboard as we speak.
