I successfully smoked my bees today, and checked on them to make sure they were doing what they were supposed to, without any problems. The smoke is just to calm them down, and it worked fine, and even better, I found the queen (because I paid $1.50 extra to have her marked with a dot of red paint--which was money WELL spent!). She has been busy laying lots of eggs, and there is some lovely healthy brood (baby bees) which (I am happy to say) is not gross--which was a big relief!
We are working on a huge surprise here at our house, and I will have some awesome photos soon, but I am way too busy right now!
