I just finished inspecting hive Salvia with a fellow beekeeper; it looks as if the re-queening was successful. Though we didn’t actually lay eyes on the queen–and we both have trouble seeing eggs–we did see larvae this morning.
Depending on the weather, I may peek into the hive again in ten days or so to see how the ladies are doing, but for now I just happy to have seen little shiny white larvae in the hive. Right we both think that there are good honey and pollen stores for the winter in Salvia.
First on the agenda for tomorrow is to dismantle hive Rosmarinus to see if there is honey that can be salvaged. But for today, a very happy beekeeper!
