  1. Nah comb isn't new I'm usually pretty good spotting them ? ? ?
  2. They haven't even started laying being my first time buying mated queens thought maybe it takes them a while to adjust to new surroundings. Wondering if I wasted money now??
  3. One FD is full of bees 2 - 3 frames of pollen, 2 -3 frames of nectar/honey, other FD 1 - 2 frames of pollen bees on 3 - 4 frames 1 - 2 of nectar/honey. The other 2 are 3 frame nucs 1 pollen and nectar 1 drawn and one with different stages of brood.
  4. So I added 4 queens to some splits I done on the 9th checked couple days later and they were out of the cage. Checked week later to see if they started laying. Nothing. Checked again today and still no eggs but queens are still there. Seen some pollen stores but no eggs. Am I missing something? Am thinking of feeding some pollen and little bit of sugar syrup?? Any help be much appreciated ????

  13. Bit of an update seems takes a while for us to get stuff up here at the tail of the fish... Anyway performed a sugar shake with all three hives varying results. First hive I got 5 mites, second 9 mites and last one just the one.. So I'm thinking treat the two with 9 and 5, check the other one again couple weeks and go from there? Or just treat them all...
