On Thursday, Mrs Watson and Mr McMullan inspected the new hive to check if the queen was still there and if she had started laying eggs.
She has laid a full side of a frame of eggs and some of the nurse bees have become worker bees out foraging for food.
In the original hive, they are busy building a new queen. They know the old queen has left and they have built about 10 new queen cells. We will keep the one which is long straight and fat!
