Each Wednesday, I open our two new hives for inspection. `I have been so excited for this day to come, knowing that week 2 would bring lots of fabulous changes, in the hives!
Here are some of the questions I have been pondering:
-Would I spot the queen, in each hive?
-Would there be larvae?
-Would there be capped brood? (the final stage of the bees’ metamorphosis)
-Would there be a crescent of pollen, with nectar or capped honey above that?
So many things to look for! Take a look at what I discovered…
Although I did not see Thelma, our queen bee, from our 1st hive, I am not worried at this point. There were eggs present in her hive, so I know she is around somewhere. Both hives were flourishing! Honey bees sure have one amazing work ethic. Within the next few weeks, all 9 frames will be filled and a new deep hive body will be added.
Until next week, remember…Just Bee-u-tiful! Check back next week, for another hive update!
