Some weeks ago I found around 20 queen cells from hive number 7. Next week they were gone, some of them completely vanished (could the wax have been re-used?) and a few left with open heads. No sign of queen being present. As a precaution we moved a frame with eggs from another hive and hoped for the best.
This week I wasn’t at Helsinki and hence had no chance to visit the hives, but I was happily informed that all hives, including 7, have active queens, and plenty of eggs. Two new hives arrived a week ago, and will probably be joined with each other sometime later. Eight more hives from Åland islands were transported to Houtskär for Sanibee project.
Beautiful and amazing, aren’t they?
