First hive inspection with the kids.

Logan and Paige in their new bee suits

Danielle says they look like little space men.

It's a little hard to see because our photographer doesn't have a bee suit.....yet.
The kids and I did an inspection and our weak hive is now our strong hive.  The strong hive swarmed before the rains we had and it appears that they are queenless.  Looks like we'll be buying a new queen.  There's no brood at all in the hive.

All in all it was a good experience.  AKA, no-one got stumg and the kids had a good time.  Now we just have to fix the queen issue.
