    Default Show us your brood!

    Spring is upon us.....
    I’ve had a few afternoons that were in the fifties and could open a hive or two. I’ve been seeing some good looking brood but never seem to have a camera…I turned my smartphone in for a dumb one and don’t have any easy way to upload from the new one.
    Anyway….I had a camera today and took a pic of one frame of brood.
    They’re ready to boom.

    sp….my bees don’t really have any pedigree. I’ve brought pretty much everything into my yards over the years. They’re mongrels. A number of them are clearly of Italian descent. They overwintered with huge clusters and have exploded with monstrous populations by late February. I will have to begin splitting in earnest VERY soon.
    I hope yours are doing as well.
