First inspection of the year.

Today Mrs Watson and Mr McMullan inspected the bees for the first time this year.

In the top box there was eggs, larva and brood and lots of honey that they haven’t eaten over the winter.


Beeyonce was in the bottom box, so we put what is called a “Queen Excluder” in between the top and bottom box so that she can’t get up into the top box. This means that there will be no eggs laid in the top box and the bees will just use this for making honey.


You can see her searching around all the cells trying to find one that has been cleaned out and is ready for her to lay eggs in.



Here you can see the bees returning from foraging at flowers and they have got loads and loads of pollen in their pollen baskets on their legs.
