So today the weather was calmer and I headed out to the yard to check on the nuc. I opened the top of the box and flipped the inner cover around so they could have access to coming and going with a small opening rather than have the bottom board set up wide open. I put a stick underneath the top of the box lid cause I had some goofy bees that were not smart enough to realize once the top was closed they would be squished. (Yikes) Anyway when I turned the inner cover over I checked on the bees and they were pretty calm and quiet. That usually is a good sign. Jim had all the bee stuff in his truck so I could not poke around at all to make sure she was ok, hopefully when he comes home I will be able to check things out and I will let you know what we found later.
