Sondra’s report:

Well went to apiary and pulled the queen cage which was sill just covered in bees. A bee was inside. Don’t know if it was the queen or not. Sugar plug gone. In the process of cleaning the bees off the outside of the queen cage the bee inside (queen or not) also came out. That’s all good then and we’ll just have to wait a week or so and see if comb and brood develop. Good on sugar syrup for now. Didn’t smoke bees, wanna wait till they are settled more. Good formation inside. Bees that were out after opening hive were annoyed but they were at least using their bee entrance. I think they are calling it home. That’s all to report for now. I’m heading back to Mpls now.

Mistress Bee II, out.
