Bottom Hive Examination June 01 2013

On June 01 2013 I conducted an examination of the first split, (not the swarm), in preparation for building a two colony tower. The colony rejected and killed the queen I introduced, and chose to rear their own. I spotted her, young and un-mated, but had not seen her in the last couple of inspections, and had grown concerned that the capped brood just covered may be drone. False alarm as it turned out, thankfully. Just fears of a of a new parent!
