    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.

    Just checked a nuc I made for the first cell my bees made to supercede a great queen. Didn't see the queen at first, but I saw eggs, it's been about 4 weeks or so since I made the nuc.

    The Cell she came from


    She looks a lot like her mother.


    Her pattern


    I think I'll hang on to this one. I have another nuc waiting on getting mated, the original hive will get checked in two weeks as well and unfortunately the old queen which I nuc'd disapeared a week ago but there's 4 cells in her nuc now, will try to pull 2 more.

    This was from my 4 week inspection. I used my cell phone camera this time as using my Canon 7D with the veil on is just a bit hard. And I didn't want to keep the hive open too long.
