First inspection. Package installed 4/19. Pulled hive top feeder today. Saw eggs, pollen, capped brood and some capped stores. New beekeeper. Pretty amazing what you can accomplish with a little help from your friends.
Kenh, looking good ! You have a very nice n strong Queen. Great pix !
Did you use foundationless frames? If so did you add any wire to it? I am kind of wishing I added wire. No problems yet but seems wire would give it some support.
Great pic! What fresh white comb. Keep up the great work😄
The frame looks plastic to me, which would suggest that the foundation is plastic too = no wire, but it doesn’t really need it.
Note to self - get some sleep or some new glasses, you aren’t seeing straight!
Foundationless. Used 17lb test fishing line, strung across the frame, hole to hole, tied off tight and melted at the knot.
That’s what I do when using foundationless this way it doesn’t collapse during warm weather inspections or just on it’s own under the weight of honey.
Now tell that queen to lay some eggs!
