Well, that was more fun than last year !!!!
Last year I only had one hive and it was my first time so I was REAL
nervous. This year I knew what to do, so it was fun. Now I have 2 hives like I should - just couldn't afford it last year.
The only hitch I had was getting the cork out of the queen cage. I ended up pushing it too far in to retrieve it. I finally carefully poked a hole through the candy w/o hurting her so hopefuly they will be able to release her. I will check on her in a couple of days and maybe release her myself. The weather is supposed to be sunny and nice through Thu.
I must say, the girls were hungry!!! I put a quart of syrup in my Boardman feeder around noon and by 3:00 pm it was almost empty
