    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!
