Second Hive Inspection

We were rather excited to get into the bees today and see they seem to be doing well.  We were even able to catch the queen again!  At David’s suggestion, I stopped feeding them for the week for fear that they were crowding out the queen and not leaving her enough room for brood.   I’m glad we did as the brood pattern looks  a bit better than last time.

As you can see in the second picture, they have still not touched my new frames and foundation and I’m trying not to take it too personally.  🙂  I do hope they start spreading out soon.
