  1. I am a first year beekeeper. We live in Redding, CA, where the summer temperatures regularly exceed 100 degrees. I started my colony in early May (via nuke), and have been watching the numbers steadily grow. The hive is healthy and very active. Last week, I added a super, but haven’t seen any activity yet. Is this normal? Should I be concerned that the bees aren’t beginning to store honey?

  2. Another question from a novice beekeeper. During a recent inspection, I wasn’t able to find the queen, but, with all the new bees, I might have missed her. More concerning, however, was the fact that I saw two supersedure and one swarm cell. All were occupied. Should I be concerned about this or is it normal? What, if anything, should I do with these queen cells? Thanks.
