.an empty queen cage and busy bees!

Since I installed the package of new bees on Friday, I’ve mostly left them alone other than placing, and replacing feeders. The girls seem to really be slurping up the sugar syrup, and drawing out comb.

I did only enough inspection to see that the queen was out, remove the cage, and watch the queen moving around on the frame.

I’ll open the hive again on Saturday or Sunday to see if I can find eggs on the frames. So far, it looks as if the new colony is off to a good start.

      1. I’m at least ready for some sunny weather and at least a few days without rain so I can open the hive and see what’s going on in there. I hope to have another colony before too late in the summer.
