Beekeeping in Ireland


Spot the Queen

Congratulations, you successfully checked your colony! Everything was fine and now you closed the hive up and want to have a cup of tea. On your way through the garden, back to the house you have to pass by the old trailer behind the shed and suddenly you notice that another colony must have swarmed while you were busy beekeeping. Your tea has to wait! Find the queen again, but this time it’s a virgin which is not marked!
Look out for a bee with a bigger abdomen - if you should not be able to find her - scroll down page!


STOP! Go up again and follow the green line which will lead you to the base of a blade of grass- your queen bee can be found somewhere close to the top...


Still not found the queen?
Scroll down again until you find the
solution on bottom of page


Good Luck!
