During the Spring cleanup at the end of March there was no sign of the Queen. 3 weeks later she has been very busy. I checked on my bees today and pulling out the second frame, there she was. She’s looking as strong as ever and has many brood in various stages with some just waiting to be hatched.
I’m a little worried seeing a Queen cell, so not sure what they are thinking. I’ll do a little research to see what I need to do. More to come.
