Ok, so now I've had a few days to stew on what happened during inspection. I know you guys will help me and not make fun of me, right?
In regards to all the bees on the frames, I was just watching a video of WallsBeeManDurham and he took out each frame and said to just shake the bees off into the hive. He shook them and his frames were beeless. He then also had the opportunity to clean off the frames of propolis.
Which brings me to my other issue...(So it's ok to just shake each frame like that?)...when you take out each frame and look at them, how do you remember which way they go back into a hive? After thinking about it, I tried to look at the frames and turned them and took puctures and such and when I put them all back together again, it seems like it was hard to do and now I'm wondering if I put them back in backwards or something and as I pushed them together, I may have squashed my Queen. ? Oh man, I'm so worried now that I messed it up. I now realize the nuc frames do have writing on them. LASV or something like that. I guess you would make sure all the writing is facing in the same direction? On my own frames without writing, maybe I should make a little mark on one side so I'll know which direction they're supposed to face? Have any of you had this same dilema in the beginning? Should I be worried?
