So when I took out the queen cage, I noticed that the bees had built burr comb all around it. It looked beautiful, so I held onto it and mounted it as “art”. That got me to thinking…what if I put something else in the hive, would they build burr comb around that, too? So, with a lot of help from Julie, I put together a sort of fake frame and suspended a few objects from it (a mini vase, a honey dipper, a stone, a key) and put it into Hive 2. Now, I’ll wait a couple of weeks and see what happens! Hopefully, I’ll have some objects with comb built around them that I can exhibit.
