Inspecting Green Gables with the State Inspector

In early May, Abigail noticed that something did not seem quite right with her hive, Green Gables. We contacted one of the state inspector and he came out to inspect the hive with us.

Here he is looking at a brood frame.

He immediately noticed the sick looking brood, but thought that they had probably got chilled. Chilled brood is brood that froze to death because the bees could not keep them warm.

The state inspector said that the brood had just been chilled. The hive should have started to grow in size. The next hive inspection should show a thriving hive.
