checked the trapout today, not much changed, the bees are still coming out but much slower.
the trap hive has 8 frames full and bees are not able to get into the tree anymore.
looked for the queen ( she should have hatched out3 to 4 days ago ) didnt see her.
there were no queen cells today but there were at least 5 of them 2 weeks ago.
will check again in another week and might be able to pull the cone off!
the trap hive is bringing in nectar and capping honey very quickly!
new pic below
jp notice the hive is level? the golden rain trees are blooming still but you can see the seed pods forming where the blooms were.
funny looking golden / red blooms both on the same tree.
