My First Student Consultation Was Amazing!!
Many people have been emailing with concerns about the slow brood build-up. A lot of folks with two colonies have said that one is doing much better than the other. This was the case with Alisa and Mary's colonies. They asked me to visit their hives yesterday and I was very happy to find both colonies have all four stages of the metamorphosis process! Their bees have been hard at it to store pollen, make honey in the corners of their frames, build honeycomb and the best part of it all was that both queens were laying full (oval) patterns of brood on as many frames as were available to them. Great Job Alisa and Mary!!! You should have a very successful season and your location is perfecto!!
