This Week In Beelandia

Just a few notes on what's gone on in Beelandia since my last post:

  • I did a 24 hour sticky board test for mites in both Bee Glad... and Lib-BEE-taria on Wednesday. I am pleased to report that their mite levels are very low. Only three mites appeared in Lib-BEE-taria and 4 in Bee Glad...
  • The queen in Plan Bee... is healthy and laying. Besides seeing her, I also observed brood in all stages.
  • I refilled the frame feeder in Nuc To Be Named Later.
  • Today I went out in the drizzle to check the hives and one guard bee in Bee Glad... took a distinct dislike toward me. She got me right on the back of the right hand.
