HIVE CHECK 4/25/2013
I finally found my gloves and hood and just checked my new bees - I am very pleased that they are exceptionally calm and very industrious. They already built an astounding amount of new comb (not where I wanted- not their fault) with eggs in just under a week. I did have to remove the comb and attach it to a frame, and now have the hive set up the way it should be. I will leave them alone for the next two weeks before I peek in on them again. Was even able to taste test a few teaspoons of the most scrumptious honey. I am VERY happy about this swarm and their queen. I only wish I could have taken a photo.
