These have several nests in our shed roof. Today we opened the door to find 9 sluggish queens walking slowly towards the daylight. Most of them are spending the night suspended from aliums, only a couple flew off before dark fell. (All bar one warmed up next morning in the Sunday sunshine and flew off. We watched males patrolling outside the nests and occasionally "catching" a queen.)
