Few New Brood
Just finished an inspection. 2 colonies, 1 Carniolan 1 Saskatraz. Both had a good amount of capped brood and plenty of pollen. Both had some honey/nectar, but not a lot. But neither had very many larvae/eggs. The number of bees made it hard to see, but I thought I would be see more.
I am in New Hampshire, so I expect to see numbers of brood dropping, but the lack of uncapped brood was striking. Any reason I should be concerned? Did not see either queen, but wasn't looking all that hard either.
