Here are my red wasps!
If you look behind them to the right, you’ll see another nest. They started out as two individuals, but paired up to make a more efficient nest! Both have eggs in them, but the one that made the rear nest frequently joins the one in the front to help work on theirs.
The Florin girls are out like crazy!!
They are also bunching up at the top by the inner cover for some reason. I’ll have to see if there are ants or something up there.
I sat the less pristine comb from Lloveara aside just to see what would become of it, and sure enough when I looked today there were a bunch of little wiggly wormy hive beetle larva on it. So that’s that I guess.
Remember this comb?
This is it now.
Feel sad for bees yet?
Quick honeycomb backgrounds and textures. Free to use anywhere. Give the bees credit though; they worked hard to make this beautiful work of art!
On closer inspection, the girls are also scraping the propolis off of old bottom boards and inner covers and frames that I have out. This makes me wonder just what they are using all this propolis for. Because that’s a whole lot of propolis that seems to be vanishing in to the hive.
Notice that the lovely lady in image two has blobs of cleaned propolis in her pollen baskets. Just goes to show that they can use them for much more than just pollen~
Florin has opened up a previously sealed crack between hive boxes, and are beginning to use it as an entrance. It’s kinda cool to see them modify their home with such ease. The crack was completely sealed with propolis just about a day and a half ago.
This is why teamwork is so important. No matter how huge the task may seem, as long as you have friends and family to help you it’ll be done in a flash! Xp
There are a few scouts around one of my bait nucs! That must mean there’s a swarm out there looking for a home! I hope they chose mine~ X3
Welp. The spiders are out.
Fresh, home made bread with home harvested honey~
Nothing quite like it.
