first time in the hives for the grandsons today. the just 6 year old helped do a newspaper combine. a late nuc and a queen-less hive that got a queen the same time the nuc got started, still a lot of bees but they seem insistant on being queen-less. the nuc had a couple of full frames of capped brood. the 4 year old was interested in running the smoker, also touching the bees, he had gloves on. it all went well. the boys like burr comb honey. the 1 year old watched until another year, always watching what his cousins are up to.
