some of the workers have surrounded the queens and seem to be not letting her move but not harming them.

I know if they wanted to kill them they'd be dead. the many maggots and flies I add prove that. so just wondering if anyone knows if this is good or bad? I'm gonna leave them overnight and hope for the best

also, I am wondering what to do with hibernating them. will they be okay if I just leave them?


my colony is about 200 strong and has 1 queen originally but hopefully 3 soon
