Checking on the Queens

Today is the 4th day since the installation of our two new queens. Two days ago I removed the tape to allow them to chew the sugar blocking the hole which will release the queen. The first hive showed some activity but the second hive didn't even begin.

Taking a paper clip end...

I pushed some holes into the sugar loosing it up and making it a little easier for them to get them out. They are showing positive interest in their new queens. I witnessed them feeding them through the cage which is a very positive sign. No aggressive behavior which is also a very positive sign!
Thank you for reading my blog which also serves as a journal of the goings on here on the farm!
