I checked my hives at Lytchett Matravers today, and all is well. As with my other sites, and due to the “June gap” the bees have been using the honey as there is insufficient forage for them at the moment.

One hive, into which I placed a virgin Queen on the 8th June, has come on really well with 8 frames covered in bees, and 6 frames of brood in all stages. Obviously the queen got mated pretty quickly, and has settled in really well.

Good news for once.

Also, the sole survivor from my incubator failure survived the night, and is quite lively. She will be going in to a mating nuc this evening.
