Reply To: First Inspection, what did you find?????


I did my first full inspection last Sunday. One hive was already bursting with bees so I added a second super to the one I had added a few days before when I say how full the brood.

My second hive is from a nuc I overwintered so still only over about 5 frames so no rush for a super there – yet.

There were drone cells in both my hives but no sign of drones just yet. I’m scrabbling to improvise a bait hive at the moment in case the strong hive swarms early. Another inspection tomorrow so we’ll see what I find then.
