2016 BSAA Plant Science – Beehive Inspection

After discovering the queen bee had flown the hive, Mr. Curry found us a Illinois Queen Bee that we introduced to the hive on April 29 and we returned on May 12 to check her progress. The Queen is still alive and apparently very busy producing new brood for the colony. If the progress continues, we will attempt to split the colony in early June if she produces a young substitute queen to manage the new colony.
