Well, it took three months but I am now properly initiated. Little witch popped me good on the thumb today. I'm a little worried, though. The girls have been surprisingly docile from day 1. Today, though, very ornery. Some of you may recall that I found a new queen two weeks ago. Today was the first time I've been in the hive since then. I was just taking a peek to check the honey super. Two weeks ago, 3 or 4 of the ten frames showed some light frosting where they were just beginning to draw out comb. Today, 10 frames slam full of honey & nectar. I haven't fed them a drop in the last 5 weeks, either. So, now I am wondering if that new queen didn't take and they've got nothing better to do than make honey and be in a foul mood. I only spent about 5 minutes today looking in the super. I'm going to go back in tomorrow when I have more time and see what is going on in the two brood deeps.
