Our new Carniolan queen has been accepted! We named her Queen Ruth.We made this 2 minute visit only to remove the queen cage. Every time we go into the hive and mess around with the frames, we set the worker bees back a few days.
Within this time we were able to see that Queen Ruth is busy building her brood. Her ladies are hard at work and have already filled up some honey frames in the second deep super.
Interesting fact: Queen bees can lay up to 1500 eggs per day.
