Green Lane again today and this time we went through GL1. The queen is red with a black tail and she is laying on 13 and 6 half frames. We removed one lovely frame of honey and replaced with drawn foundation in the super but there will be honey from that hive.

GL3 had many queen cells so we removed the queen and 3 frames of brood, added a couple of frames of foundation and brought her back to the garden. So, we have left that colony queenless with 3 and 5 halves of brood and 6-7 queen cells. We also added a super.

Whilst at Green Lane we also added a super to GL4 above a QX.
