Italian cousins arrive

Post: Bernie: June 27, 2011
Note: To follow our Bee Keeping adventure from beginning to end, choose Setting up the hive from the index at right.

Even though the hive is growing, eggs being made and honey comb being created Eric thought to would be a good idea to add some Bees, eggs and comb.

So he took a few frames from a hive over a his house and brought it over.

That other box have the "Cousins" in it.

Welcome to your new home.

That's HONEY at the top of the frame and eggs waiting to hatch at the center.

Yes, you have to go.

The new "Italian cousin Bees" are from the same breeder that the rest of the hive is from.

Clean sweep.

He was especially careful to make sure that the Queen wasn't in and among the ones he is bringing over. You'll remember what happened last time we had two Queens in the hive.

Let's hope these all get (not like those Montague's and Capulet's) along.
