Bee Larva

Hubby and Vet2Be checked on the bees last Saturday. The were thrilled with how the bees were doing. They are building comb and the queen is laying eggs.

The bees had connected one frame to a frame in the box above. When Hubby and Vet2Be took off the top box, they heard a 'pop' as the comb separated. The burr comb had some larva in it so Hubby brought it in the house so we could see what the larva look like.

You can see the larva in the bottom section of the photo. The top shows some of the comb that the bees are building.
