A New Queen Bee

Here's the new queen going into a box, she is in the little box and in time will eat her way through the lolly end and rule a new kingdom!


tizi said... often do you have to re-queen? I think my queen was brand new when the hive was rescued so I hope she stays healthy for a while!!!!

Tizi, you might re-queen if the bees are not behaving in a manner you approve of. So if they become particularly aggressive or slow in production, or you just want to change the strain.
