Two Queen hive
« on: August 04, 2009, 11:21:39 PM »
I went to the bee yard yesterday to take a good long look in the hives.  One of my hives had two queens.  Mother and Daughter.  The mother was a from a package installed in April 2008.      They were walking right near eachother on the same frame!  It was time I wish I had my camera.     

Unfortuanly I was honeybound so there was not a lot of space for them to lay eggs - so today  I went back and removed some frames and gave them some new ones.   I only went thru the top box and I didn't see the Queens this time.

Started my foundationless test with this hive.
