Queen update

We have had a bit of a mare!

The queen in the old hive either never hatched or has died since she hatched.

She could have gotten injured when she was out on her mating flights or she could have gotten lost or eaten by a predator – we will never know.

However, we know that there is no queen in the old hive! This means the bees are unhappy.

We have taken a frame which had eggs and larva in it from the new hive and put it in the old hive to see if the bees will grow a new queen. Watch the video to find out what happened.
