11 May 2018 - The bees in Hive #1 swarmed twice within 5 days and ended up completely queenless. On May 11 I received a new BeeWeaver queen and placed her in the hive. A week later I moved a full frame of brood and nurse bees over from the strong hive to hopefully salvage this weakened hive. At far left is my attempt (in vain) to catch the swarm with an empty hive. I'll remove that shortly as it did not do the trick!

03 May 2018 - The crimson clover has pretty much played out and is dying. I will be mowing it down in a few days. The Bee yard is to the right beyond the pond, next to the solar panel and BeeCam. The Wunderground weather station is at the right.
