Today was a very interesting day for beekeeping. As I may have mentioned in a previous post, I have a hive that had to be moved off of my property because it became aggressive. The plan was to find the queen today and kill her. Then tomorrow I was going to install a new queen to replace her. Well, when we opened up the hive, there was no queen. It looks like she died on her own. I have no idea what happened to her but she is gone. The problem is that since the hive became queenless, one of the other bees decided that she would try to take over the responsibility of being the queen. I mean, someone had to step up so you can’t blame her for trying to help. But the problem with the laying worker bees is that they can only lay drones (males). So you would think that my problem solved itself but it’s actually a much bigger problem now because if you install a queen with a laying worker, the laying worker is going to kill the new queen because she has appointed herself as the new queen even though she really isn’t. It’s impossible to find the laying worker so instead we had to install some new open brood from another hive which releases a pheromone that for some reason causes the bees to think that there’s a real queen in there that’s laying eggs. So we basically just tricked the bees so that the laying worker will stop and in two weeks I will come back and try to sneak in a new queen. It may or may not work but if we don’t put new brood in there, the entire hive will eventually die because only boys will be born and they are useless. So…. truth is that the world of beekeeping is complex but fascinating.

It’s a perfect day for pulling the onions and planting melons and squash!!

My girls like hanging out their Aunt Maru and Uncle Kristofer’s house. They have the best pollen over there. The bees pay them back with lots of tasty honey!
