When i managed to get the queen into the nuc, I closed the lid and left them to it, Louise and I stood and watched them for half an hour to make sure they were ok then we came home for tea and a sit down till half eight. When we went back to the nuc to strap it shut and block the entrance, we saw three or four "pools" of a yellow substance on the top of the nuc lid. Would this be honey or wax or something else from the bees? Is is anything to do with the way we did things or left them etc?

Too many - but not nearly enough
SWMBO reckons if i washed the car the fuel consumption will improve substantially - as a compromise I've promised to mow the grass growing on the running boards!
