Me neither but give me a shout if you are struggling i usually get there in the end..NigelP wrote: ↑25 Jun 2020, 10:52Queen spotting is not working well for me at the moment. I have 2 problem hives that I moved to bleed off fliers and reduce numbers of bees, which worked fine. Can I find the queens, can I buggery.
So final straw shook all bees into a brood box with 2 frames, placed a queen excluder on top and put the beeless frames of brood above. At least tomorrow I know where the queens have to be......but to err on caution they will be removed from apiary before checking for them. And air freshener unite the brood boxes to two docile hives nearby.
