Queens on Queen

Beekeeper Fred Davis updates us on the honeybees that live on the roof the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. located at 145 Queen St. W., here in Toronto:

We installed five new queens just over two weeks ago and, based on what we see, they have all been accepted by the hives. Plus I created a new hive by moving some queen cells to a distant location on the rooftop. Remember each hive has only one queen so I removed the under-performing queens before I introduced the new queens. We now have healthier hives with new queens rearing more brood!

Thanks, Fred!
