Trouble with the Queen

Post: Bernie: April 29 through May 3, 2011
Note: To follow our Bee Keeping adventure from beginning to end, choose Setting up the hive from the index at right.

Bright sunshine this morning shining right on the hive but when I went out, no Bee sounds could be heard. I thought maybe they were all out working already. Later in the day I checked again and still no buzzing and not a Bee in sight. I called Eric.

He came right over and we opened up the hive, great Bees, a lot of Bees, but on inspection no larva was being deposited into the comb cells. Maybe something happened to the Queen Bee? The cold weather maybe?
