Today was our first full inspection this year of our 3 hives here in Mid Wales. It reminded me how much I love that different personalities of each hive!
Our three colonies, Jeff Beezos, Beeyoncé and Beelon Musk have each got their own personalities despite only being a few feet apart. Jeff is a prolific pollen collector and super chilled. Beelon is comparable only to a stoner really. I feel like everything could be on fire and they wouldn’t get too aggravated, but equally she’s not the strongest layer (one to consider re-queening this year) and honey production was average at best last year. Beeyoncé however… she’s bringing home the bacon! Crazy levels of honey production and the colony is extremely active, but not overly aggressive, more curious.
