Conducted my first inspection today.
I had five brood frames inserted into my eight frame hive on 7/12/17.
The two empty frames on the outside edges are full of honey (I was not expecting so much honey…) All six frames in the middle of the hive, appear to have a mixture of brood, pollen and honey.
I did not get to see the queen, but there seems to be plenty of activity in the hive.
I set up the camera to film the inspection, but the lighting is not clear enough to see anything, so that’s an unfortunate mistake. I will have to learn camera placement too
I was very nervous and overly cautious, I hope on my next inspection, I will be more confident and also have a better understanding of what I’m looking at. I also really hope I get to meet my Queen
I am so in love with them already, I purchased my hive in the initial crowd funding phase, but life had not given me an opportunity to get started until now.
I will try to get some images from my video to post.
Cheers - Annie
