    Thats awesome buddy glad to hear and see your queen is looking good. Things changed for us too we are going to be home tomorrow to check out the situation with our now three hives hopefully the swarm is still in the nuc my daughter said she saw activity with bees flying in and out yesterday so fingers are crossed.

    Nice pictures Don! :thumbsup: That's a good example of that floret pattern to look for when trying to find your queen too.

    Thanks everyone! I'm so excited I was worring all week! Would you believe I was so uneasy when my friend helped me Hive the Package that I didn't even look at my Queen?! I took his word that they forgot to mark the queen so I'm thinking he didn't even look!

    Medic1259... you have a Queen right now...I can sense it!:cool:
