The Queen is Out and About!

I got my bees last Wednesday and Sunday Caleb, Elodie and I checked them and the queen was released from her box (or as Elodie says-cage-which is more correct). The queen has a yellow dot on her to spot her easily. This will not harm her but helps you see her better. I gave them some more sugar water solution (until they get established) and they have already built about 1.5 combs of wax! Amazing. Busy as bees…

    Can you get me in touch with other bee keepers in Santa FE so I can learn more-there’s a guy who raises them for their stinging immunity for chronic diseases. I can’t wait to put in a garden that could incorporate them too!!!! Thank you -you’re the greatest site

    It’s easy to use – sorted by season and color of the pollen.
