March Beekeeping Class

14 Apr 2014 10:57 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Our March class was later in the month due to rain but the rain was very welcome.  We had Reggie there for his first time in a hive.

After watching us open the hive and taking out a couple of frames he did the rest.  What a natural.  We found the bottom box full and the second box empty so we pulled up 2 frames of brood and a couple of honey to make some space.   In the process we saw a decent laying pattern and we even spotted the queen.  Great first day for a new bee.

 

 

Just a reminder, these are foundation less frames.  We just push the comb around a little bit to get it straight when it's first being made and they wind up pretty straight.  No starter strips either.
