My poor queen
My poor queen! She was purchased this year from a package in Ga. The Hive was established on March 17. Since that time, I have removed 26 frames of brood from this hive either as a split or to fortify other hives or queenless situations. Saturday the 7th being the most recent removal of 4 frames to donate to a smaller hive and to relieve crowding.
This poor queen has laid so many eggs this year. I kinda feel sorry for her. The Brood chamber is now 2 deeps, 10 frames Langs. they have 2 supers on top of that...One drawn out and capped and the other in process.
Saturday while in the hive...They had two frames of honey and two frames of pollen i each HB....Every single other frame was full of brood i various stages...other than one. (the final frame with foundation).
I hope she makes it through the summer heat and the winter...Next year I hope to be able to make a bunch of copies of her.
