Greetings from West Borneo, right at 0° latitude.
I’m new to actual bee keeping. Just got my hives for the very first time last Monday. (4 days ago)
Today is the second time looking into the hives. Not as nerve-wracking as the first day. I’m trying to evaluate the hive strength. But I really need help… there’s no local bee keeping community here that I could find.
I have 3 hives but only looking into 1 today.
This is how the frames inside look like at about 2pm.
I have confirmed there was the queen 3 days ago. I also added 1 empty frame on that first inspection session.
What I’ve seen so far is that it’s very crowded but quiet and calm in there, and there’s really not many capped cells… And I’m not to sure if there’s egg laid (are they really really tiny?)
Thanks and Swarm regards,
