First inspection

First inspection

The 1st inspection revealed a nice burr comb with eggs and larvae. No one was stung. The queen was not seen but hopefully the eggs are a good indication that she is around. With a full jar of sugar syrup the hive was closed back up.

The day after the hive was inspected, there was a first indication of the colony increasing weight by themselves possibly by bringing something, either pollen or nectar, into the hive (G).
