Bee Bearding – Got Beard? Nucs Sharing A Bee Beard

Bee Bearding – Got Beard? Nucs Sharing A Bee Beard

I have been very busy lately in the beeyard and have so much to share with you about bees.  I still have plenty left to write about the treatment free conference. Plus last week I attended EAS so I have even more to share. Until then I thought I’d show you the site I woke up to this morning.  Two nucs, both from Squill, who are bee bearding and sharing the beard.  One has the original queen and one has queen cells.  The workers don’t seem to care.  I’ll tell you all about the nuc building  as soon as I get a chance to get out of the beeyard and back to the computer.
