This was the day I decided to make up the nucs ahead of the 3 Buckfast queens coming in on the 30th.
Didn’ t go to plan as the bees were really ratty and got stung around 10 times. Also struggled to find the queen in 2 of the e 3 colonies.
Aqua isn’t swarming. Saw queen, marked and clipped her. However, marking was very poorly done and need to see if the bees continue to accept her.
After unites should have 5 colonies and will re-queen 2 and let 1 expand to full colony
