I am now 100% convinced there are larvae in both hives. We looked at the 8 frame hive today, and confirmed the presence of baby bees!
Also, they were ultra mad. It took me ten minutes to be rid of all the bees afterward, and I got stung thrice. Clearly I am not at the level of the moustache man from Queen of the Sun. The About page now has a total of all the stings I have gotten so far. I am sure I will give that up one day, but it’s amusing for now. Also, Benadryl cream works Wonders! Chelsie took some pictures, which I’ll post once I get them.
