Looks like the side of #aretha has swollen open and the girls are taking full advantage. Thought they might seal it with propolis, but only they know what they want.

So unfortunately I have now developed an allergy to my loved hobby. My new best friend in the apiary, Epi-Pen Fine for the first three years now itโ€™s all over. Luckily itโ€™s only major if stung from neck up. Hope I never have to use this. I have noticed that when stung on any my fingers it seems to cause horrible sores and hardened skin.

Propolis. A resinous mixture that honey bees produce by mixing saliva and beeswax with exudate gathered from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources.

So this is the frame that had drone comb attached to it last week. As you see they have secured it into place now and seem to drawing out more drone cells. So this will be a drone frame from now on.

Inspection time. Looking for signs of the queen if she not seen. Looking for eggs and a good brood pattern.

This is how to transfer comb to another frame. This will become my drone frame hopefully as they wil continue to draw out the empty spaces. Just a small patch of girls will be in the middle and can be left alone after the drones are uncapped. The loose comb is held in the frame with string that the bees will eventually chew through and drag out of the hive, when they have secured it. ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ Photo Credit: Myself iPhone #bee #bees #insects #pollinators #beeswax #frames #transplant #nationalhive #beehive #hive #brood #beekeeping #beekeeper #beekeeperslife #honeybee #honeybees #treatmentfreebeekeeping #backyardbeekeeping #growth #transfer #hive #beehive #apiary #mellifera #apismellifera #savethebees๐Ÿ #savethebees #essex #hainault #localhoney #dollysnaturalapiary

This frame is a part of our treatment free pest management. The bees built out drone comb, which varroa love to multiply in. So the capped drone cells will be opened and checked for mites.
