Jaimi, Maddi, and I went out to the Kois Farm Hive (KFH) today to see if we could find a queen. My eyes aint what they use to be up close so we took some video to get some other opinions.
This colony has been in this hive for about 9 days. They came from another TBH that did not over-winter for my cousin very well and we assumed it was queen-less...that was almost exactly one month ago so I didn't think it would even last this long. So take a look at some of these videos and tell me if you see a queen...I've looked pretty hard and did not see one.
