Question??????
« on: June 23, 2012, 02:21:09 PM »
Upon inspection of my hives this am one hive is loaded with bees, pollen,honey, Queen and no Brood! Is it an unmated queen or what?  :?
Psalm 19:9-10
The fear of the Lord is clean,enduring forever; the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, yea ,than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

As yockey5 said check back in a week for eggs.

During your inspection did you see any evidence of queen cells that have been torn apart?

If she was a laying queen does she have anywhere to lay, are they honey bound, any empty space for them to expand into?
those hot bees will have you steppin and a fetchin like your heads on fire and your @ss is a catchin!!!

Bees will be bees and do as they please!

They do have the space and no queen cells. She is a pretty queen also but kinda surprised me and started the hive from a cutout that had alot of brood and they hive raised the queen there

May be un-mated, or just mated and will soon lay. Give her a lil time.
