The swarm i hived on friday!

Noticed something odd at the entrance and on further investigation, found this



It looks like a mess of crap/wax/other stuff all mixed in.

Anyone know whats going on here? Are they trying to narrow the entrance down or something?

They are starting to draw the frames out, obviously i cant see down the bottom where this strange mass is!
Guess just let them get on with it. They will need to be transfered soon anyway looking at the amount of them in there.

You know what, who cares? :D



Another one to me! I hope someone is keeping count...

I actually saw the queen walk into the nuc box this time, she went in and out 3 or 4 times.
