well today was the last straw. i guess bking is not for everyone, quick run down that got me to this point. i inherited a hive, find out the hive is queenless order a queen, bees are happy, she is laying eggs. queen now either flew the coop, dies or accidentally got killed. no more laying eggs, bees are real troopers they keep going about their business taking care of brood from first queen. ordered a second queen, placed her wednesday checked on her this afternoon, two dead bees inside cage but queen still moving, thank God, even though i poked a hole in the sugar candy, bees did not get her out. so i just released her! also placed an outside feeder, those yellow contraptions, well all that started was a BIG FIGHT with other hb, guess from another hive. they were duking it out to the death because there were dead bees on the landing board, took that away quickly, then to top it off you have a brother yelling in the background, "told you not to do that" and his experience is he took one class and now knows it all. sheesh. so the harder i tried to help made everything worse, best thing to do when getting into a hobby is READ first, hope everyone else doesn't have as much bad luck as yours truely. happy beekeeping to everyone else.
