I’ve tried to stay away from the hive and to just leave them bee but I went to have a peek the other day and saw tremendous amounts of activity around the hive. When I first arrived I saw that there was one lone guard bee watching the entrance to the hive. She was making just about everyone check in before they were allowed to pass. I opened the top feeder to peek in and there were TONS of bees drinking syrup.
We’re going to do a hive check tomorrow to see if the queen was released. I better make a fresh batch of syrup because it looks like they’ll go through a gallon pretty quickly!
