tom, are you psychic? My friend Jeremy gave me one book and that's it!! Kim flottum.
Anyhoo- I gave them some syrup in the new hive to help them along. They seem to like my cooking.
I am stoked about the window in the new hive because I can gawk without intrusion.
Ozarks, I did tilt the combs a bit and could have emptied them out when I was trying to eyeball them. The macgyvering was gentle as I just banded it to a longer top bar from the new hive. Dang.. Thanks for that info about the eggs. Those are the intricacies of bees I am looking to learn..
