If it’s not one thing, it’s another

27 Jul

Mike and I were suppose to go into the hive yesterday to make sure that Queen Natasha was released from her cage. But of course, there was a problem. Our hive was under attack, again. And this time was the worst I’ve seen. I couldn’t get very close to the hive because there were hundred of bees hovering around it. I have no idea what started the robbing this time since we haven’t opened the hive in days. There were tumbles of bees flying out the entrance. Thankfully we have the entrance closed up so that there is only a small space to defend. Mike and I covered the hive again with a sheet to hopefully discourage robbers from getting in. I think that if it hasn’t calmed down after work I will wait until it gets dark to check on Natasha. I hope Mike can find his head lamp.
