Yesterday was Day 17 for the bees in the hive. I have checked that the queen was released and even removed the queen cage. Last time, I did not see eggs or larva. So, I decided to check in again and see if I could see any eggs or larva. Wendy even wanted to get into the act. Here is what we found: 6 bars with comb in process, some eggs and larva, and some capped cells. Now, I need to learn the difference between the capped cells - honey, worker brood, drone brood, etc.
This MooseBoots journey is simply fascinating. Oh yeah, one sting on my finger ... not sure why ... the others were very calm. I guess it also goes to show that while I may know the path I am on, I certainly don't understand all of the mystery it entails.
