Our March class was later in the month due to rain but the rain was very welcome. We had Reggie there for his first time in a hive.
After watching us open the hive and taking out a couple of frames he did the rest. What a natural. We found the bottom box full and the second box empty so we pulled up 2 frames of brood and a couple of honey to make some space. In the process we saw a decent laying pattern and we even spotted the queen. Great first day for a new bee.
Just a reminder, these are foundation less frames. We just push the comb around a little bit to get it straight when it's first being made and they wind up pretty straight. No starter strips either.
