Greetings, first year beekeeper celebrating 30 days since package install. I’ve already experienced a weak queen, supercedure cells (capped and uncapped), then no queen, then requeening with a new mated queen and a frame of capped brood. I did remove all queen cells before introducing the new queen. All before I even do my first mite check! Inspection yesterday and queen released and moving around, will check in another week for signs of laying…

I’m 65 yo and am wondering now why the heck I waited so long to get into this pursuit. Even with all the tribulations so far I still find peace working the hive and just standing back watching the arrivals and departures at the hive entrance.

Wishing all a successful 2022 bee season…
