New Queen Installed
Dawn and I were up at 5am, and of course it was rainy outside! The weather radar showed a brief clear window over the farm, so we raced up there and was able to install the new queen in the West Hive. We also looked in the East Hive. Boy, there is a big difference in the number of bees between the two hives. I'm hoping there is enough workers that will live long enough for the queen to raise her young! I will check the hive again in a few days to make sure she got out of her cage.
