Start Queens

Comb was placed in with my original queen yesterday. The image was taken today and shows eggs. Will make my large colony queenless at the weekend and introduce these eggs.

More Space

Put supers on 3 of the 4 hives, left excluders off to try to encourage bees to move up. Doug and john helped to find the queen in third colony. I'll put some empty comb in with original queen for eggs later this week, getting ready for nuc making. NIck found this hornet up at Longsdon!
