    I introduced a new queen to the one hive that was vandalized by truck,, 05/22/2012. Today I went up to check the progress, The queen was still in the cage, and the candy was only partly chewed through, so I released her, and she immediately dove between two frames. I know this is a weak colony, but surely their numbers were enough to get thier new mom out. I also gave them a pint jar of honey they need any and all help they can get. Hope this Tropical strom Beryl, doesn't tear too much up.

    Hang on! I know y'all probably need the rain. Hopefully it won't be destructive.
