Hive Checks (4/29/2012)
The Librarians are finally starting to build comb. Didn't powder sugar this inspection and in general the hive is looking healthier. Lots of drones are hatching out and there is some worker brood on the way, but not as much worker brood as the other hives have right now. Several practice queen cups present, but no larvae or eggs in them. The hive is at 90% capacity and they are back-filling drone comb with nectar pollen. The queen still has a spotty brood pattern. Took three frames of pollen/brood and added to a nuc I made up with the Nuc C queen. They took half a gallon of syrup this week.
