Bees are gone!

I came back after a few hours and found the bees all clustering in a small area in one of the logs on the ground. After making a few improvisational cuts and such I modified a vacume to hold a box for the colection of bees. Everything worked relatively well, then the sun went down. I'm not quite sure if I have the queen or not but, I should be able to find that out soon. Tommarow afternoon, I'm planning on taking the bees from that box and shaking them into a super on top of the hive here and separate the potential two queens with a queen excluder. This way, I'll be able to tell if I have a second queen, without risking either being killed. The bees in the box have heardly made any noise so I'm also concerned about thier condition. I guess by this weekend I'll know if I have a new queen and the makings of a new colony.
