Bank Holiday heads up….

Hi All, Don’t forget to keep checking your colonies for swarm preparation, even if you’ve already done everything.

I went through a colony today that I false swarmed 10th April, (single brood frame with queen and some brood placed in a 14×12 with 11 additional frames with starter strips. The parent hive moved to new location.

This was a simple false swarming, e.g. no additional flying bees from emerging brood). This box is now full of brood and queen cups (no eggs in them yet). Just 24 days and they are almost ready to swarm again!
