Oscar Queen Release Check

Today was scheduled to check to see if the bees had released the queen.  They had indeed:

Nobody but workers in there.

Candy plug is gone

She is in there somewhere

The bees were calm about the whole procedure.  They looked like their were working on at least 3 bars getting ready to build comb or building it.  Time to leave them alone for a week and let them get to work.  I switched the entrance reducer to the larger opening to give more room to come and go.  Next week I will remove it completely.
