wow :eek:, just started a new package Wednesday (the 19th) and seen lots of orientation flight Thursday, Friday morning bright and early they were bringing in pollen already. heck i have not even had an opportunity to see if the queen was released yet and can't hardly believe they have comb enough to start storing pollen already. so what are they doing with it ????
granted this hive i used foundation where last years was all natural cell in a tbh, but i was under the understanding that they were slow to start foundation :s. so what gives ??, are they using it up as fast as it is brought in or are they actually just great little cell builders and this is natural since it's late in the spring.

thanks in advance all

ok great
well we checked ( i say we but i made my sweety do it, it's her hive and she needed the oppertunity to get her feet wet) and all looked well. i see where the pollen was going now. they were actually packing it into the pattern on the foundation where their was no comb being built yet :doh:
on a side note, i thought giving her a chance to search for the queen while she had the hive open for inspection would teach her a lesson about nagging me about never being able to find the queens in the other hives. ( sort of a see it aint so easy is it :waiting:) unfortunitly my plan backfired and she found her straight away :applause:
ahhh well, guess i should just be grateful she is interested in the little honey makers and wants to be involved, she could be telling me to quite wasting my time with those bugs :D

now if it would just warm up here in wyoming so they can get to work in the fields and make some honey.
