* All Sales Final* Purchase of queen bees are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged.
We cannot guarantee that the queen will be accepted by your hive. To increase the chances of acceptance, kill the old queen at least 24 hours before introducing the new queen. Remove plastic cap (if applicable) from the candy cork, leaving the candy intact. The time delay from the bees eating through the candy cork gives the workers time to acclimate to the queen's pheromones, increasing likelihood of acceptance. Inspect hive after 3 days to make sure she has been released.
