Added two very heavy frames of Italian bees and brood to the weak hive split that I requeened a week ago today. On inspection today I see lots of capped brood. This tells me there was already a queen in the hive when I requeened. I was afraid that might happen as they had time to raise one naturally. So long as it stays queened, I'll be happy. It will either be an Italian that they raised or the Carnolian I introduced. I paid $50 for the bees to Jeffrey Rupert in Bremerton.
Today I also supered up the very active Hive 3 (C) out front.
