Cloudy, 16C

Moved National 14×12 frames into WBC hive – new brood box in WBC box, placed frames during inspection.

6x frames brood (Queen sighting)
3x frames stores

Varroa Treatment

Added first dose of Apiguard onto frames.

Feeding

Placed rapid feeder with sugar syrup above small eke (this prevents the bees from making too much honey using a large eke – when feeding and giving varroa treatment, bees will make wax)

Eke
Apiguard
Brood box

To do

  • how much syrup has been taken down?
