First inspection of the new bee hive and update about our new queen

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!
