Queen Bees: Queen Marianna and Queen Bianca

We are in the process of expanding our hives and it appears one of our original queens swarmed with a bunch of her followers. After searching around the current hive location we saw no evidence of the swarm so they obviously have headed to a new home. So we are now waiting for the bees to finish raising a new queen to the throne. My friend Dan sent the following picture which I love! When the new queen is crowned we will name her Queen Marianna after one of our little beekeeping helpers. We also have a nuke hive from the original with queen cells and that hive will have Queen Bianca in their court. We look forward to these two new queens doing a good job at producing top quality honey for the two our two little queen helpers! Thanks, Dan for the great picture!
