It's in Romanian, a lovely impression of the language and of Transylvania's fortified churches. #romania   #transylvania

So, I did my first inspection. I must admit that I had a few sleepless hours before, trying to anticipate what would happen and be prepared. 

The white hive was so easy. They are building their second new comb into the tbh nuc. Good girls. 

Then I checked the pink hive, having to pull out the Dadant nuc at the bottom. I suspected that they were cross combing somewhere in there, with all the syrup they've gobbled up and nothing to show for upstairs. And so it turned out to be. 
I'm just so glad that I got myself a smoker and I ended up mostly smoking myself, not the bees... Every few minutes some bees realised that I was the one causing all the trouble... 
In the end I decided that I would not want to repeat the ordeal and found the frame with the queen, shook that into the tbh and let the other ladies walk in on a 'red' carpet. 
The added difficulty was to quickly cover up that hole I had cut into the bottom. I had to walk away and cut a suitable board. For all the commotion I caused, the ladies were pretty patient. 

One feat was to get the frames I 'robbed' off them out of reach... I carried them off into the house one by one, after sweeping off the last bees who wouldn't drop on the carpet. 

What really amazed me is that the other hive just kept on doing their thing, calm as ever. 

And one more precaution I'm going to take: I have a half suit, that ends below the hips. I will wear a belt next time, so no bee can get up into the veil. They may sting my bottom but not my face.

If you think you've got problems... note the position of the girlfriend.... I think her perspective will be quite unique...

Got bees. This is the plan: on the right, the white big hive is half full with the empty half closed off and a triangular hole to the neighboring box, which the bees are supposed to expand into. It is a top bar nuc, from where they will be transferred into their own big hive (yet to be built, ha). The new comb will have the trapez shape outline to fit into the top bar hive. 
On the left, the bees are supposed to expand upward, from a Dadant nuc into a top bar hive, which is portioned off. The access is in the bottom board. In both cases, the hive entries and the feeders are in the hive they are supposed to grow into. 
Hope it'll work.

I've finally got bees. After a bad fall in May, I was in pain a lot, and didn't have the guts to start beekeeping. However, the girls moved in tonight. First time handling real bees. Holy moley, they really buzz. No stings for me, but my dog Daisy didn't stay away like I told her to. Now she is hobbling, just like I have been for the last few weeks.
I felt that the months of study really paid off, because I knew exactly what to do.
I designed two boxes joined together, from the local Dadant system to my African top bar hive system. Now the bees have to move from one to the other.
