Carni install

I have placed the carni replacement queen in the hive that has run amuck. I will be going back in on sunday to ensure she has been released and everything is okay.

She was not cooperating for a photo, but you will be able to spot her a mile away with her blue dot!

I took the queen cells I found and placed them in the nuc over the railing. I am going to see if the virgin will get mated and start laying there. I am not sure there are even drones within a 3 mile radius of me, so this will be a good experiment.

The bees are REALLY pissy and easy to excite. I guess being without a queen will do that.
