So my order of package bees from Mann Lake arrived 24 hrs ago with over 2” dead bees at bottom. I contacted customer service with photos and haven’t heard from them yet. The shipment was delayed by a day so they are likely needing to get out of the box soon. What should I do with the weak starter bees left?
Sell Queen to someone nearby?
(Still in Queen cage)
Release them and see what happens?
Keep them in shipping container?
