Bees March 2015

It has been a busy morning at Maggie’s Corner today.

If you follow my posts you know I had bees in the old house on my property last year. Well there were more that were in a different section of the wall we missed seeing last year.

Queen cell capped off.

This hive, according to Clarence is about 4 to 5 years old and I can see that myself because of the look of the wax, I learned that bit last year. There were multiple queen cells and one huge one is capped off. Take a look at this beauty!
