A new hive, a new beginning...

What to do when the Observation Hive at work is over run with bees...hmmmm start a new hive! The Queen had wall to wall brood in there, lots of eggs, larvae, and capped brood.

So with two frames of packed bees and brood, I took them up to one of my empty hives...

with some left over frames filled with honey...

I added the frames into a hive body. A little unconventional I know, but it is May, there will be hundreds more bees in just a few days.


Added some sugar water into a feeder with Honey B Healthy...

also blocked the entrance and placed the cover down so they can't get out until they are adjusted to their surroundings and hope for the best!
