Hive Checks, Bee Stings & Supplies from Steve Victors

If anyone needs any beekeeping supplies from Steve Victors, I'm headed down there this next weekend (May 17-19).  His website has a list of supplies at:

I will be picking up some more queens as well.  If you haven't performed a complete hive check - do it!  You need to determine whether your queen is laying eggs.  By now you should find eggs, larva in a variety of stages and pupa (capped brood).  If you do not see any of these stages of brood, you may need a new queen.  They are $25 and I have one extra queen left.

Finally, to keep from getting stung through your bee suit, you can wear a hoodie.
