There isn’t much to do while I’m waiting for the queen to be released. Monday evening activities include making another batch of syrup solution for the hive top feeder. I’ll check the syrup levels Tuesday evening. I don’t think the bees should need additional syrup but I’d rather be safe than sorry for my first go around.
I also found a cool site called BeeTight. A beekeeper from England created a web site to track and manage your hives and apiaries online, and it is also mobile enabled. I went ahead and signed up to check it out. Since I only have one hive at the moment, this blog is good enough for recording purposes, but if I ever expand past one hive, it looks to be an excellent tool for tracking your hives.
