We had our own little mystery unfold over the past week. It was complete with a missing person, vanished children and a ghastly murder. Yes Sir, our resident beekeeper had to string together clues and the case is still ongoing. It started with a routine investigation of one of our hives. Upon inspection there was no evidence of baby larvae inside. And if that wasn’t unnerving enough, our Queen had all but disappeared. Once again, Chris set out to secure a new Queen so she could start laying eggs in the babeless abode. When she was introduced to the hive the bees inside didn’t seem to bother. Almost like they were ready to crown a new Queen and begin a whole new chapter in the hive! But this story has a bittersweet ending. One that would leave a dead Queen in our midst and a mysterious phenomenon we are still trying to explain. How’s that for a cliff hanger???
