Second Week Beehive Check

bees of top of frameThis afternoon I checked my bee hive again.  Above are the bees climbing between the frames after the lid was removed.  The one in the middle seems to be looking right at me.  Next is looking down the frame after one had been removed.

Here are the bees working on a frame.

And another less developed frame.

And finally my first larva seen!  This proves I have a queen working in the hive.

And here are several larvae!

I managed not to spill sugar syrup all over this time.  But my smoker gave out on me too quick.  So I am on a learning curve still.

  1. I find bee keeping fascinating, and I’m glad it’s going well for both bees and YOU! 🙂
