First White Wax Today
« on: April 10, 2006, 04:29:41 PM »
back on the 6Th I put my bees in the hive. On the 7Th I released the Queen, today they have gone through a quart of syrup and I have white wax, plus I went a head and did a powdered sugar treatment, while I have such few bees. I checked for mites and counted 14, this would have been the # dropped from the 6Th. Tomorrow I will go and count from the powdered sugar treatment. That is not to late or to soon is it?

By the way the white wax is on frame 8 but there are clusters of bees on frames 4 - 9 evenly spread. I do see a lot of them coming in and out very quickly, yesterday cutting the grass we had to stop in places because bees were busy collecting nectar, a first for us.  
The fun begins, now my wife wants me to buy her a bee suit.  

Have a great Day and Thanks!
