We opened up one of our hives and found some small pieces of burr comb attached to the hive lid. When we find the bees building burr comb we tend to remove it just so they don’t start building all over the place and make a mess inside the hive. After removing this piece I noticed it was full of eggs. For those of you who have never seen bee eggs they look like tiny grains of rice.
Generally it means they don’t have enough space for the Queen to lay eggs.
This particular hive is relatively young, a split we made 2 months ago. They had 2 empty frames that they also began drawing out comb on, so right now they have room.
Then it’s just bees being bees 🙂
Yes 🙂 We thought the same.
Great photo of the eggs, very clear.
Thank you 🙂
