Mokoroa Inspection

Visited the Mokoroa NUC today, the Queenless NUC experiment.

Well no surprise but no new brood, as I also suspect no queen as well. No Queen cells have been created, and the base of the NUC has around twenty dead bees. Things are not looking good for this NUC.

We have doing an inspection of Goldie again this week, after last week’s failed attempt to inspect the lower brood. Hopefully we may find a Queen Cell that we can transplant into the new Queen Less NUC.

Added a frame to the NUC to make it up to five frames, but the Bee’s are not drawing out new comb anyway. May need to do some research if someone in New Zealand sells Queens.
