Michael Palmer releases more queens from under a push in cage. He explains a interesting situation that's different to most!! Good viewing!! This is a shorter clip of a video I took while spending a fantastic week with Michael Palmer at his Apiaries in Vermont around the Champlin Valley. This is such an excellent method to introduce queens. In this particular clip. Mike shows what to look for in the rare event, that there may be another issue in the colony ( a rogue virgin queen on the loose) and the bees may be agressive towards the queen , 4 days after she was put under the cage. Luckily these bees were not , they were just trying to access some honey already under the cage with the queen.
