More Buzz

On July 29, 2012, my mom came over and we checked my newest hive together. She showed me queen cells (ends were open not capped so whew!) and we got rid of those, then we found newly laid eggs! THEN on the very next frame, we found my Queen! My girls by this point were FURIOUS and hammering away at our suits....LOL NO one got stung, but NOT from lack of trying! I pulled frames and my mom snapped pics with my camera!

So, here's the pics from that day! (The Queen is in the last 2 pics, but the last pic is a cropping of the original).

We will be opening the other hive today or in the next few days, providing the weather cooperates. Hopefully we'll have honey to harvest.
