Bee Hive Update

Drone Comb and Pupa

I went into all three bees hives today and I am happy to report all hives  are ‘Queen right!’  ‘Queen right,’ refers to the fact there is evidence of having a healthy laying queen in the hive  Healthy brood. is evidence of a hive being, ‘Queen Right.’  ‘Brood,’ is a collective term for eggs, larva and pupa in the hive.  The photo here was taken and shows drone comb at the bottom of a honey frame.  This is the strongest of all my hives and they hive has maintained a full super of honey through the winter so far.

I removed the drone comb from this frame with my hive tool.
