Saturday 8th July

Pete and I did an inspection of all hives, except queenless No 2, which we combined with a queenright nuc on Weds. We left that to get on with combining! We’ll check how they’ve got on on Weds next. No Queens yet in the Langstroth hives. Hive 5 appears to have decided to supersede their Queen, just two Queen Cells. Rest going about their business more or less quietly with the notable exception of the split from Hive 1 who were very bad tempered, and stung Pete several times!

We discussed ways to get beginners “hands on” at the Weds meets rather than watching us demonstrate.
