Maintenance Check 27 July 2011

Ably assisted today by Pro Vice Chancellor Neil Latham, Suzanne and Denn. We saw lots of eggs but we also witnessed several fights between wasps robbing the hive of its honey and bees trying to defend it. We are taking steps to reduce the hive entrance to allow the bees to defend it more easily. Still little evidence of the bees moving onto the new foundation but we'll give them one more week then think again. No varroa found on the varroa board!

At last I managed to get a photograph of our queen, she can be seen ringed in red on the photograph. As you can see shes quite hard to spot
