I've discovered a cold streak in my otherwise loving nature and I'm rather shocked: only 2 weeks ago I was on mission to save Little Legs from certain destruction as her colony shrunk around her. I was emotionally invested in her survival and wasn't going to let nature run it's course. That was until this weekend when I finally realised she was rubbish, and had gone, perhaps the workers had ditched her. Perhaps she was a bit Edward-like and wanted another life so abdicated. Anyway. she's defo not there as no eggs or larvae to be seen and so no queen action for at least 9 days. And that's what has made my heart harden to her, she didn't just need a helping hand, she was no good. So I have put a frame of eggs in from Big Legs' hive so that I have more of her bloodline coming through as I still love her! There should be queen cells in there next week, exciting times!
