Can someone enlighten me on what's going on? Yesterday I pulled honey, I put the wet super on the hives late in the afternoon. I went out there just now to see how things are going and on one of my hives the bees had the super almost covered. I put on long sleeves and took my smoker out there and I gently smoked them so I could see if maybe I didn't get the cover on good enough. as I smoked them I saw a "ball" of bees (on the outside of the super) and as I feared - inside that ball was a queen. I gently put her on the end of my bee brush and put it at the entrance and I think she went back inside. I don't even know if she came from that hive? I checked and I did have the cover on properly, but they are still buzzing that super so I closed down the entrance quite a bit (I already had it down to 1/2) and I sprinkled them with the hose thinking it was a robbing frenzy - but that is a strong hive anyway. Before I sprinkled them, I made sure I didn't see a "ball" of bees on the outside. Why would a queen be on the outside? I had never seen this happen before?
