Hi everyone, finally the beehive is buzzing again. Man Iâ€™m glad its time to get back to the bee yard. (There is just so much time I can pass playing Texas Holdâ€™em.) We had a beautiful day here and I decided I would do my hive spring-cleaning today. I was a bit nervous, I had kept a pail feeder on all winter long due to a robbing problem I had in the fall. I wasnâ€™t sure if there honey supply would last. I was thrilled to find the hive thriving I had a abundance of bees, a couple of frames of capped honey, a frame of capped brood, plenty of larva and eggs, plus finally caught a glimpse of the queen and was surprised to find she was still the same marked queen I started with last spring. (On one of my inspections last year I had sworn I saw the queen but, her mark was gone so I thought the original had been replaced, beginners mistake I guess.) I switched the frames over to a couple of new bodies so I could clean the propolis off of the old ones, reversed the hive bodies, added a drone frame, put in a bee-pro patty, Apistan strips and added the hive top feeder with Fumigilin B and Honey B Healthy in the syrup. Did I miss anything? Iâ€™m adding a new hive this year and ordered package bees and an extra queen for the existing hive. After seeing how well it is doing though Iâ€™m having second thoughts about replacing her. What do you all think I have a tight brood pattern and it seems she is laying quiet well. I keep thinking of the saying, "If it ainâ€™t broke donâ€™t fix it."
