Too Hot for My Bee Suit!

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

by joe, it’s hot today, I’m now hiding from the sun today, yesterday, I weeded the allotment for a few hours in the midday sun, and got sunburnt arms!

and today, at 1pm was in a full bee suit, inspecting the bees…must have sunstroke! I ate some honey comb straight out of the hive the other day, it was delicious!

not sure but these could be - Supersedure cells?

Supersedure cells - bees have decided to make themselves a new queen, either the queen is damaged, not laying, disappeared, or old.

Update - these could be drone cells, and not Supersedure cells because they are too small and not vertical.
