Season 7 – I Still Don’t Know Everything I’m performing

two colonies in complete:

1 nest is drone laying queen or even placing employees
And 1 great colony

two new queens purchased in the article and prepared to pop in


Hope poor colony was drone laying queen, then locate her and pop up at a 2019 queen
Artificially swarm the great colony and then pop new queen at the colony therefore that it gets motoring right away (leaving older queen in the hive on first website )

What amuses
Poor colony

I couldn’t locate a queen as well as the egg layout looked clearly like placing employees, i.e. patchy.  No point wasting a queen with this colony.  Far better allow the colony slowly dwindle.

Great colony

10 frames of bees.  Don’t gone to the supers in any way.  Quite a little drone comb. Small progress in two weeks.
That I couldn’t even locate the queen thus did a three way split
Took 3 glasses outside and put in the opposing side of this beehaus and hauled into a queen. Additionally, I made certain drawn comb and shops within this hive
Took out two frames and put into beige nuc. Made certain drawn comb and shops within this manner.
Hope queen is currently at the hive on first site
will leave for two weeks and see where we’re
Not convinced that some of my colonies can create honey this season … however they don’t have seven months to Develop prepared for your July nectar flow


Swarm Management
None of these days when you mark and spot halve your queens and sense nearly capable.  This is a reality check it’s hard to locate queens a few days.  But at least I just what to do – ideally produce some colonies which are great to go in to sunlight.  Over into the bees!
