WHen You Requeen Get the Best.  This year is Blue, right?

I got into my strongest hive today. There she was, big fat gorgeous queen, painted red. Has a double deep laid as full as could be expected (12-13 deep frames of brood) and no signs of anything like slowing down. I had a little smile.

Then I took a frame of eggs and larvae and called my M. She's the grafter around here. ;)  we're going to try the Ben Harden method on this hive.

I'll have pics (hopefully of success) in time for BeeFest.
