Last week, we were back down to freezing temperatures, which was a little scary knowing about all the new bees waiting to hatch. This week, in typical Minnesota fashion, temperatures are back up and the bees have been busy.
Below, you can see a new bee hatching, or emerging. Can you see her antennae and front eyes sticking out?
Both hives are looking healthy and I'm guessing we'll add another super to each by next weekend. They have also been working hard to clean up some of the comb from last year that we put in the hive to try and give them a head start. They're doing a wonderful job.
We are enjoying the progress of the bees, and also the progress of spring and the hope of summer. Little Miss Bee is just over a week away from finishing Kindergarten. We're starting to eat watermelon and playing outside as much as we can.
We hope you are enjoying this season, too!
