Bees Coming Out Of Our Ears!

One of Alison’s ex work colleagues, Andy, keeps bees. So far this year he has had 4 swarms! We took advantage of his generosity and restocked our recently dead hive with one of his swarms, and then, a couple of days later we obtained another of his swarms in a (borrowed – thanks Peter) nucleus box. We now have two and a half hives.

Our own hive, looks to have requeened itself – my last inspection showed no red queen, and what appeared to be an unmarked queen laying. Hmmm. There were, however, no signs of any queen related waxworks going on. I’m confused!
