Kath and Steve saw the queen yesterday. All’s well. Here’s a slew of pics of the bees, the insides of the hive, some bee people, and a big brown bee dog. First comes the smoker, then opening the top, then the sugar feeder, then pulling the frames, to check status and hopefully, see the queen – which did occur. Then replenishing the sugar water (they are not yet self sufficient). Then closing up. All is well. And … they are as busy as bees!!!!
Also – the cooling vent was opened up.
