Still waiting for an uneventful inspection

Another update from Stewart...never a dull moment in Bee keeping!!!

Yet again my bees are up to their tricks. On inspection today one hive which I have as a brood and a half were making swarm preparations with queen cells on the underside of the super frames being used for the 'half', so much for a bigger hive preventing swarming ! Artificial swarm control later in the week then.


capped cells with a developing queen.
Can you spot the queen cell??
Another hive are also superseding their queen and have made three or four supersedure cells, one of which is capped. Attached is a photo of one of the capped cells with a developing queen.

Still waiting for an uneventful inspection.
