They were definitely mean. Had a discussion with a guy that was trying to sell me Buckfast bees. It didn't take long before he admitted how they were. He insisted that you just had to requeen them but he didn't say what to requeen them with.
I know you’re a Southie and all but you are just south of me. My bees are pretty much bundled up I have not seen a great number out of the hive for 10 days now.We checked our only hive on Saturday... It looks like they actually accepted the queen.
That was a real shot in the dark.
There was capped worker brood, some larva and some eggs. They also got busy and got their honey capped.
There were quite a few hive beetles but the girls were actively chasing them around. The swiffers pads trapped some but I should put a couple beetle blasters in.
I took out the Apiguard mite treatment tray. I won't be winterizing until it's colder.
