Day 16: Capped Brood and Queen Sightings!
I have 2 extra sets of safety gear so we all suited up and had a great time inspecting the frames.
Lots of capped brood! New eggs too, and brood in all stages in between.
We spotted the queens in both hives. I was not expecting this because last week I looked and looked and didn't see either one. Sean spotted the FlashMob queen on the side of a frame and I spotted 'The Others' queen.
Lots of capped brood in this photo.
You can see large larvae in most of the cells in this photo.
I put the inner cover on shallow side up by mistake last time I filled the feeders on The Others. They built some extra comb on top of the frames which we removed and saved for candle making.
