More Bees Please.

Maybe it's the foul brood, maybe it's keeper greed but regardless...Krista and I ordered more bees. Just one more hive to boost some keeper confidence and also production.
Nala testing out a new super while we organize to hive the bees. These bees and their queen seem very docile, like a purr or a quiet hum.
Krista pouring bees into the hive, the queen hanging in her cage between frames. Already worker bees are eating away the candy plug to release her so she can start laying eggs.
So far, setting up a new hive never gets old. A fresh start, clean everything.
Cheers to a new hive!
