Again, some easy, some not so easy, so old hats and nubees can both try!

# 1 - You are looking through your hive and you pull a frame to have a look at the brood pattern.
Do you see anything in this picture that should concern you?





# 2 - Hoffmann is generally credited with todays modern beekeeping frame. What adaptation did he create that made them so popular?



# 3 - What are you seeing in this picture? There are two possible causes for this, can you name them?





# 4 -What was Lorenzo Langstroth's middle name?



Good Luck! :grin:

1. There's no pollen or honey surrounding the capped brood but there appears to be a possibly capped queen/swarm cell on the bottom of the frame.
2. Wedge bar?
3. Appears that the queen is failing due to very spotty brood pattern.
4. Levinworth? Leroy? :razz:

1) Queen cells on base - prelude to swarming
2)Made them self spacing
3) Drone brood - failing queen or Laying workers
4) Loraine (have a friend with same name so remember)

Zulu hit every nail on the head! :thumbsup:

Dave, you may have been sort of right with "Wedge bar," wrong name but right idea. I think you probably knew # 4 as well and were just playing about with all the L's. :lol:

This was great idea, Perry! Educational yet entertaining. If it were food, it would be delicious yet nutritious! LOL :)
To be honest, I thought Langstroth's middle name started with an 'L' but I didn't know what it was. And I wasnt gonna look it up to spoil my fun!
