HONEY BEE SQUAD

04/24/2017

Sad news to report. The bees died! They were doing well, but I believe the queen started to lay too early in the season and the workers starved to death trying to keep the larvae warm.. SAD

Very busy BEE day...


The bees are marching back to their new home. Always an amazing view!



Hive : package installed with a cage queen.

Status: One box with frames and pollen patty + one box with liquid feeder

The recovery is taking place; slowly but we know this is a good location. I am sure they will make a strong recovery.

In box 1, eggs and larvae were observed. Did not see the queen, but the population is growing nicely and second box was added...

Lots of Eggs and larvae. This hive is building up its members slowly but surely. Will need a 3rd box added soon.

No Honey stored yet!

MO Treatment.

Eggs and Larvae were spotted in box #2. 6 frames used with a very good solid laying pattern. Sadly not a lot of Honey stored! Slowly but surely is this hive's leitmotiv.


Added box number 3. Check boarded box 2 with 3.

This is your report from Ryse. Good job, and thanks for your help Robert.


But look at what the golfers did to box 3... They took the hive for a target.... LOL....



Liquid Gold being stored in the frame.

With the sun behind the frame the artwork of the girls is mesmerizing....
