New colony in Snohomish

A new colony was hived yesterday in Snohomish. The queen was released accidentally, she got out of her cage before I had time to put the candy. Fortunately, everything looks alright today. We had a hot Spring day and the bees were very active. There were a few fanners on the landing board. Everything appears normal as seen from the entrance. The colony has 5 jars of 2:1 sugar syrup in a feeder, plus the can that came with the package, still about half full. This colony is W10.
