It's good for the bees though, since they don't get much in the way of "spring" flowers around here.

I haven't been looking for them lately. I should.

I found a Bumble bee queen, but now have to setup a cage for it.

It is spring, only queens are alive in the spring, the first Callow Workers are really tiny, much the same as ants.

Hopefully it works out we will find out in 48 hrs after I setup the cage, and get it positioned where I want it. I have to make her stay in the box for a day at least, so she will think to start a nest in it, although it's a 50/50 chance it might work/won't work.

Yes, plus it's early, and If she doesn't stay just get another and keep trying.

Got the inside mostly done, but need to work on the outside, It has to be dark but I also want to be able to see inside.
