|Say hello to Rozina|
These bees will be hived in 2, 10 frame medium boxes. Those boxes have 10 frames filled with pollen & capped honey. The other 10 frames are fully drawn but mostly empty. The bees will start off with excellent resources and plenty of empty cells for the queen to lay eggs in immediately. I hope the bees will brood up quickly enough to provide honey in the first year.
Once the brood nest is filled and of great size the current Queen will be removed. That way the bees will make a new 'local' queen with a better chance of winter survival.
