The summer is coming

Wallington hive swarmed in early May and I though I had lost the virgin but today I saw 3 frames of brood in all stages. It pays to be patient.

Battersea hive number 1 is doing very well though they are a bit aggressive. Lots of brood. Nectar in the supers but not capped yet. Lots of pollen in the super too which is unusual. No queen cells

Hope Queen’s Park is doing OK. Haven’t had a chance to look yet.

Battersea Number 2 started as a weak colony but is expanding. Marked the queen the other day. 6 frames of bees.
