Quickly: installed a new queen in the queenless hive a couple weeks ago. She’s doing great. Helen has been checking a couple of the hives, I’ve been checking the newly queened one and another. They all are doing well, and the new queen–a Carniolan–is laying well. She’s still new, so I don’t want to disturb her or the bees, but each of three frames I checked before coming upon her was full of eggs and brood. More on this topic in the next couple days.
