    Default compound microscope pix of developing queen larva

    I've got my nicot system going so I pulled one of the cups inside to take some video (on my FB page) and still photos. Really cool to see the grub with the breathing holes.
    And 12 hrs later, she is still alive and wriggling around in the queen cell that has been sitting on my kitchen table.

    That is interesting; do you manage just TBH’s? or have Langs too?

    Mostly topbar hives because I can't lift even an 8 frame Lang due to arthritis (also why I am into bee sting therapy and other apitherapy products).

    I just started a horizontal medium Lang this year, and I have been known to put my topbar comb into 5 frame Lang nucs (but they have to have a window in them)
