ball of brood hive
« on: September 16, 2012, 12:59:39 AM »
did a small hive today, about like a soccer ball.  every cell had an egg in it,  that wasnt larvae or capped brood.  I had to bag this one in a hurry because of the storms before this little front.  sucked them up quick and set em up.  I didnt look for a queen, just got it done.  when I went to set them up my eyes must have been playing tricks on me.  I saw maybe teen bees that looked like queens, really long abdomen, and they wernt drones.. They didnt have the really dark spot on the back.. I admit im exhausted after this week, Ive never seen a new hive with multiple mated queens?  lot of drones in there too.  I will be on it first thing in the morning.
