A dead queen.

We are grateful you are here

A dead queen.

Today I was very disappointed to find a queen dying in front of a hive, the hive was queen less for a long time so I introduced a good laying queen from a new split to this hive almost 5 days back , the thing which I am failing to understand is why do they decide to kill her so late? I mean I opened her cage and saw her getting accepted by the colony but then why they killed her after 5 days? I try to put the weak queen near the entrance but then some of the bees start to attack her by removing her leg and antenna.

It was such a waste of a good queen 🙁
