Giving Queen Rearing a Go!!! Part 2

print

We got some new supplies yesterday and today we set up some new NUCs.

We checked out the frame that we put into Honey 1 the other day. The bees had expanded the comb and the Queen (which we saw today) had laid some eggs near the edge. I trimmed the comb back to eggs and put into the NUC.

We also put in some frames with capped brood, pollen and honey. We also shook in some Nurse bees from honey 1. We sealed up the box and moved it to another part of the Bee garden. A spot that gets more sun and isn't as damp.

And as Mexi-Doug would say “Now we wait”
