I just got back from checking the Carniolan colony which I hived on Monday. They were almost out of sugar water. I pulled the queen cage out - EMPTY! I looked for eggs - EGGS! - I looked for the queen - BINGO!. . . Her name is "Snow Angel." My prayers for this colony were answered!! I will check three more on Sunday or Monday before leaving for Anchorage to pick up more colonies with Wanda Bowder.
