On to the first inspection. The hive looked fine so opened it up and moved the frames from the queen cage area.
|Rearranging the frames.|
|The queen cage exposed. Notice the extra comb|
|A lot of bees on the cage|
|No queen here. Yay!|
|Really don’t want that comb to be there.|
So far; so good. Now I need to go ask in one of the bee forums on how best to deal with the chunks of comb between those two frames.
So far no bears, or if there were they didn’t mess with the hive. Gotta get that electric fence installed!
