Queen bee laying eggs

While inspecting our bees today we caught one of our queens laying eggs!  Very interesting to see.

At 0:13 and 1:03 she lays eggs.  You can also see a worker bee feeding her at 0:27.

  1. This is amazing, thank you for sharing such a great video. I shall be tweeting this! 🙂 Your queen (this year’s as she is marked yellow?) looks like she’s doing a great job.

  2. Love it. You can really see how the bees gather round her, and her abdomen is shaped perfectly to get right down those cells.
