I checked up on the bees in the BackYard, and it is looking a lot better than 4-6 weeks ago.
I have now 7 colonies with well laying Queen Bees, two Splits I made today. If they work out I will be up to 9 working Colonies. Finally, 2 of them all are at a stage we can expect some honey from, …. Soon. One honey box is more than 50% full, maybe next weekend we get lucky to be able to get the honey from them.
I was also finally lucky enough to capture a “Free” swarm, just by placing an empty hive box in the area. Soo cool.
