A bit of a fun evening, getting hands on and learning and practising queen marking with drones. So if any beekeepers in the Eythorne / Shepherdswell area find drones turning up in their hives with coloured dots on, this is the reason!
We also transferred the Langstroth nuc into a full hive.
1700 again, weather permitting, when we should do some hive inspections. Jackie and I ran a virgin Queen into hive 1 last week, smoking heavily. (Bees that is, not us!) Let’s hope they have accepted her, as their temper seriously needed improvement!
