So, the swarm that was collected on May 9th is doing quite well. We have split them into two hives and introduced a queen in the new split, which is also doing quite well. I am very happy to say that both hives are quite docile and very easy to work with. I’m a newby so the more docile the better as I seem to get stung at least once every time I get into a hive.
My bee garden is slowly growing. I planted English Lavender a week ago and I’m hoping this will do well. If it does, I will be planting much more. I also LOVE hibiscus flowers. I currently have one in a pot that is doing quite well, but the small one I planted has been dug up by an unknown. My next project in the bee garden is to get a honeysuckle bush.
Keeping my fingers crossed, I will be getting two new nucs in the next month.
