- 1 colony from last year and 1 swarm I caught in May
I have just had my first look at my bees. The regional bee inspector, who is a member of our local association and lives close by, offered to come with me - so I welcomed him with open arms! All was going well - they have drawn out a couple of frames already and there were eggs, larvae and sealed brood and they all look healthy. We found the Queen in the middle of a frame and then all of a sudden she wasn't there! The bee inspector is worried she may have flown away. He has told me to check tomorrow and let him know. Should I be worried? If she had flown, will she go back to the hive?
