Hive Check 13 July 2011

3rd check complete. Maureen Maggie and Phil assisted. The bees were numerous but still mainly jammed into their original 5 frames, although due to some trickery last week we encouraged them to start drawing out the foundation wax on one of our frames. We just hope thats started the ball rolling. We spotted the queen again so all is well. In case it was making a difference we took the netting off the front of the hive, so if anyone spots any overt magpie activity let me know. Hopefully with so many bees now buzzing in and out of the hive it should not be a problem
