Inspection today – there was no eggs and larvae but a lot of capped queen cells. We destroyed all but 3 cells however as we destroyed some 2 had queens that emerged. We marked these 2 and placed them into the hive and see what happens.

There were still a lot of bees but certainly less than last time. I attempted an inspection on the 14th but withdrew as the bees were instantly more agitated. Also observations since have had bees carrying no pollen.

So so now we need to leave the bees some weeks to evolve and see what the new queens can do with laying brood. Fingers crossed.
