I got all my answers here and at the BeeSource.com forum. What is this strange cell sctructure recorded on June 18, 2011? It is full of larvae. Pulled it from the Upper Deep frame 2.
Here it is during inspection#7 recorded on June 26, 2011. Larvae are capped over. All looks well throughout the hive. Lots of brood, honey, larvae and eggs. Nice patterns throughout. That means the queen was present and healthy at least 2 to 3 days ago. The sugar water-Honey B Helathy mix needs to be replinished 6-28-11. Bring 2 bottles. Video and more pics coming soon.
Other questions to answer as I head off for inspection #7 :
- I’m using 2 Deep hive bodies with (8) – 9 1/8 inch frames. Once these both meet the 70% full ratio can I add the queen excluder and a honey super?
- Do I need another hive body beside the two honey supers I have now?
- How is my queen doing?
- Video for inspection #6 has to be published and I’m going out to record for inspection #7
