This is the time of year when lots of Bee Keeping Clubs have field days for their members….my husband and I have been so busy on hour homestead we have not been able to make it to one of them and we were asked to host one this year but the scheduling just does not work for us this year unfortunately maybe next year!
My husband because of the Queen laying only drones had to kill the queen in one of our hives, he shook all of the bees out of the hive to let them walk back in and then he put a frame of fertile eggs from the other hive in this particular hive. This footage is him checking for queen cells…I tried to zoom in as much as possible so you can see what he is looking at.
Basically we are trying to have the colony pick and choose their own queen instead of going out to buy a queen.
