The photo below shows the results from our Miller frame. I am going to tear down the emergency cells and leave the cell that is too long and one good cell and use the remaining cells in mini Nucs.
It also looks like some of the grafts have taken, I will post a photo of these in the next day or so.
Considering the cold and wet weather over the last fortnight I am pleased with the results so early in the season.

Karen will be in touch with those due to attend this evening to rearrange.

After delaying the opening of our Association Apiary due to the prolonged cold spell we were able to open it today 21st April.
The colonies were not in good shape, this one has a drone laying queen.
Apiary Opening 21st April, warm enough for brief inspections, thank goodness

The Apiary Opening Day has been postponed to the 21st April, full details will be in our next Newsletter.
Sorry for any inconvenienced caused, with this cold spell of weather there would be little benefit from opening up the Apiary.
