Today, us Accidental Beekeepers decided to check on our pets to see if all is OK with them in their relatively new abode. We’ve observed from the outside but have not intruded into their ‘private’ lives. We just felt today, without breeze and mildly warm, would be a good time to look them up.
Thank goodness we checked because this piece had fallen off the mesh hooks.
The sweet bees are simply happy to live in their new apartment, which makes us happy 😛
BUT !! …
I’ve been noticing some activity close to my Compost Drum and have not turned the Drum, just in case.
Well, since we were already “dressed for a hive of activity” we decided to get nosy and check…
I think we are about to be the proud owners of another colony!! Time to look into building another Top Bar Hive.
Since both colonies have all been living harmoniously in our backyard, I think it will be OK to place the soon “to-be-built” Hive where the Compost Drum presently sits, right? We will be doing more reading & web-surfing on this but if any reader has more information on this aspect, please let me know.
(Thanks in advance.)
