The NUC installs went extremely smooth! In the video below the sound you hear is what happy bees sound like.
I am so relieved we didn’t have any Mariah caBEE moments this afternoon!! We were able to spot BEEonce the Queen bee in the right hive. She was about 2.5 times the size of all of the other bees. We didn’t spot It’s Britany BEEch but we know she is there since the bees are working. There is no standard NUC bee count size but everything on the internet estimates there are approx 9k-10.4k bees in a NUC. In roughly one month time they should each increase to over 18k bees. That’s a lot of bees friends!
The bees started building comb in the open spaces of the NUCS. How cool is that?🐝
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend!
***5:20pm update*** They are slowly still filtering into their hives and happy.
