Raaarr I hate when I miss a swarm.
Thought I could postpone a split until today so I could show my mentee how to do it. Even did an additional early-in-the-week inspection to squash any queen cells. I missed one in an awkward place and found it capped today. 🤦🏼♀️ No eggs in the hive and my big beautiful queen nowhere to be found. Bummer; she was my favorite! Ended up teaching my mentee a pretty important lesson in swarm control 🤷🏼♀️
