Went into the hive the other day to check and see how their brood looks. From the outside they have been looking much better with a lot more foraging going on and just all around a lot more bees flying around. Inside their numbers look good. I only wanted to check things out so I just smoked lightly and pulled 2 outside frames so I could slide the brood frames apart. Saw the queen roaming around at one point. She looks really good. They still haven't drawn the RiteCell out yet though. Not even a little. They're still working on just the 5 original frames from the Nuc. As before brood looks good but them not drawing frames is becoming frustrating, even though I'm feeding syrup. I went and took an undrawn frame and dribbled some of the feed syrup from the jar on the foundation (no spray bottle mixed up) and stuck it smack dab in the middle of two brood frames this time. I couldn't remember if it was ok to split the brood like that but they seem to be doing well so I'll check in a week and see if they've touched it. While sliding frames back together one girl head butted my hand (no gloves on, just veil and coat) and I made a rookie move and flinched and she was on me like a dog on a bone. I walked away to keep it just between the two of us and she got me right on the back of the hand. Pulled the stinger and smoked my hand/body again and ran more smoke over the frames and went back to work. So I've now had my first sting and my knuckles have disappeared into the swelling. It's going down a little but I'd like to itch it 24/7.
