Foragers Club Hive Update – April 2024

Club member Nina visited the club’s apiary in early April to do a hive inspection. Before the inspection, the hive had four five-frame boxes. Going into the boxes, she found very gentle bees and lots of brood. She was unable to locate the queen, but she did see eggs on several of the frames, so she was in there. Nina also found four queen cups in one of the boxes, so another box was added to the hive. During the club’s next inspection, the members will locate and mark the queen, so she’s easier to spot when working in the hive.
