It seems a bit ironic how the best laid plans of man are so easily thwarted by tiny stinging insects....but I digress, both of my new BeeWeaver queens gathered up a mess of their offspring and went walkabout (swarmed) about 2 weeks ago. I went out and took a look into all my hives today including these two and these queens, which where virgins 2 weeks ago have laid an egg in every hole that is not full of honey, if I can gain some semblance of control these girls are going to be honey making ladies. The fist hive has a lovely new queen and are ready for another box, the second one however is overcrowded and there must be 12 to 15 swarm cells in there!!! My plan was to pinch one of the new queens and combine these two but that is down the drain for now due to the multitude of capped queen cells. I shall spend the day pondering what to do but if anyone would like to make suggestions I would gladly listen....one thing, I do not have the equipment to make a bunch of splits right now. I would like to conclude that so far, despite the problems I am having, I love and recommend BeeWeaver queens!! They are incredible egg laying machines!!
