Found Her

Here is my new queen bee. She was wandering around the side of a frame in the second brood box. Next week I will probably flip the boxes around so they are ready for winter. I’ll explain all that then.

Did you know: Once a queen bee has mated, she will have enough eggs and sperm for the rest of her 3-5 year life. I’m not going to do the math, but that’s up to 1,000 eggs per day, times 6 months of egg laying per year, times 3-5 years!
