So the bees have been in the hive for a bit over two weeks now. I've enjoyed feeding and watering them, watching them bring in pollen and create comb. Things are not, however, well this this colony. The queen is, to be blunt, dead. My bees are queenless and confused. This causes many problems, but the long and the short of it is that I need a new colony because at this stage it will be almost impossible to have them accept a new queen. Hopefully I can salvage some of the bees from this hive, but in the coming weeks there will be some new bees to tell you about. Stay tuned.
(As it turns out, getting pictures of individual bees is difficult, but here are some of the "girls".)
