    Default New Bees Emerging

    Newer beek here - tonight I saw my first comb with brood emerging. Really cool!

    I just saw an antenna poking through, then the head, then half the body, and then the bee was crawling around like all the rest of them.

    I know the more experienced among us are probably rolling their eyes , but it was a neat moment.

    It is a great sight isn't it?

    Highlights of my first year beekeeping:

    1) Spotting the queen, MY queen, for the first time with my own eyes.
    2) Watching a baby bee emerge.
    3) First waggle dance.

    And on a somewhat dark note:

    4) Seeing dozens of dead small hive beetles in my new trap. Bwahahaha!!!

    I think thats a cool thing to watch!
    One of my favorite things to do is sit in a folding chair I have near my hives with a cigar and just watch the girls fly in and out, I call it "Bee TV"
