The Queen is dead!

Not what you want to find while carrying out hive inspections – a dead queen, and one of this years too! Luckily I raise my own queens, so am able to replace her easily enough, but it is always sad to find a dead queen.

I spent the morning marking new virgin queens, and then introduced them to their new hives, I hope they will be mated and laying in a couple of weeks or so.
