Marking our queens

Yesterday we were able to find our two new queens and get them marked with a yellow pen.

Yellow shows that they were born in 2017. Next year is red.

Our two new queens are called “Beeyonce 2” and “Bombee Dreams”.

Last week we also took our first honey crop from our bees!

This was a great learning experience for all the children.

The honey will be on sale to the staff of the school first this week and all profits will  go to the Qhubeka charity, which provides bikes to people in Africa in exchange for community work such as collecting litter or planting trees.
