I now have bees. Hurrah. The queen is still to hatch and go out on her mating flight but I have 5 frames of brood and nurse bees looking after them, all in a nucleus box.

I’m so excited and can’t wait for the queen to do her thing and start producing more bees.

In the meantime I’m learning by watching what others do with their hives and bees. I actually got my smoker going too and it’s not as hard as I thought. Although I need to pack more fuel in to keep it going longer.
