|The 3 Queens.|
|The strong hive in my Back Yard|
Wrong! I checked the hives this morning. One side of the mating box is raising Queen Cells! (can you spot one?) So that means the Queen in that side is dead! I found the other Queen dead inside her cage!
|Spot the Queen Cell!|
|The dead Queen!|
1. I'm now raising my own queens which is actually what I wanted to do in the first place!
2. The hive in my back yard is nice and strong and it was no problem taking brood and eggs from it.
3. The single surviving queen walked out of the cage and onto a frame in the weak hive without being assaulted by the other bees!
I have hope!
