First Hive Inspection

April 10, 2012

Three days after I installed the hive, I made my first inspection to make sure the queen was released and to refill their syrup. I’ve been waiting impatiently to see what’s going on inside.

First inspection

Empty queen cage

The queen is out of her cage and a couple of other bees have crawled inside to clean up the last of the candy plug.

Later that day, I caught these bees in action, bringing pollen to the hive.
