Who still got virgins
Good news today. After one week emergence the last virgin finally got mated and
return to her hive. Saw her thingy sticking something out almost all dried out on a
nuc check today. At this late I thought that there are no more local drones around. Not even sure if
those are the local carnis from the bee association or the Italians drones here. Hopefully after a few
more flights she will be laying some big fat winter eggs. Looking forward to see what the new bees will look like.
And I thought now is rather late for the virgin queen. Was worried for a week already. At mid-80s today there's still hopes!
Wonder who else still have the virgins around at this time of the year?
Thingy sticking out:
Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?
