A Different Spin

A suggestion from one of the older, more experienced beekeepers - since Nuc #1 (on the left) is irritable - get a pinwheel or a stick with a string to blow in the wind and put beside the nuc. This gives them a little distraction.

I'll try anything to get these girls to settle down a little.

I'm thinking my pinwheel might be a little much - I need to find something smaller.

This photo was taken after I put the super on Nuc #1 - we'll see if the "extras" work.
