They checked the 'quickly expanding' colonies to see if we have 'laying Queens'. Both Queens were quickly spotted by the children, and the huge amount of eggs and larvae means she is doing her job well! A good Queen can lay up to 2000 eggs a day, which means lots of new worker bees in the colony. The children checked to see if the 'brood' (baby bees) looked healthy, white, pearly and curly! The Queen bee has started to lay 'Drone' brood, (boy bees) and the worker bees are already storing lots of honey. It is all looking good for a 'buzzy' beekeeping season ahead!
