If it were me, I'd let the bees do what bees do.  There might be something wrong with her that isn't apparent to you yet....


But this is the voice of a very new beek.  I seem to have screwed up everything I have touched so far this week.



Food for thought.

Let nature take it's course.

  I'm with iddee, Let them be.  I still have to fight the urge to over manage my hives and interupting what they want to do anyway.
