Growth record 1 of Japanese honey bee
Japanese bee's dividing was made and this page was made wanting to apply the record of the growth after the first crowd had been captured on April 25, 2010. Because the second crowd that had captured it on May 11 afterwards was gotten, here is recorded.
Divided bee group is captured and into the breeding box.(the first crowd)
This photograph was a japanese bee group captured and taken into the breeding box.
The bee was thrown into the bee house prepared as a waiting box (waiting tub). The insect repellent side cloth and gloves of the net were worn at this time. First of all, the box top was quietly expanded by both hands with the cardboard box made upper and lower and inverse by both hands, and it brought it on the bee house.
It was suddenly dropping of shake bee's ball to the bee house as for the cardboard box. The lid was done to the bee house at once beating the cardboard box rough.
Everything cannot be put in the box at a time, and bees of a considerable number have fallen in front of the bee house as shown in this photograph. The bee entered the bee house everything after this.
In this photograph, it corrected it later though it panicked and steps on the bee house and steps below shifted. It was losing momentum easy. How though it is good when settling down well?(April 25, 2010)
Japanese bee's nest of the fourth day
Bee's ball is taken and the photograph in Japanese bee's nest of the fourth day.
It strikes close to the bee house carelessly when the lid above is opened, and one nest board has dropped. The size of this nest was 90mmX65mm. About 1 of six corner types and the actual measurement value of the distance with the opposite side were 4.5-4.9mm.
I am just surprised at a very elaborate, beautiful nest. A brown part is a mark where pollen was collected. (April 29, 2010)
State in bee house in three weeks after Dividing (the first crowd)
It took a picture with the digital camera in the bee house because the bee house had been remodeled to the slide bottom board. The size of the nest seems about 15cm in the diameter.
The size in this bee house is about 240mm corner. The height of one step is about 180mm. They are four steps. Board thickness is about 12mm.
It was able to be confirmed the active carrying of bee's state of honey and pollen in daytime. (May 16, 2010)
State in bee house in eight weeks after Dividing (the first crowd)
The size of the nest seems about 25cm in the diameter. The nest is built to the center of the second step on the bee house of about 18cm in the height of one step.
Bee's power is very good, and Honey and pollen were actively carried though the evening came. (June 20, 2010)
State in bee house of 40 days after Dividing (the second crowd)
It is a nest of the bee to which a slow person was captured on May 11. The size of the nest after Dividing of bee 40 days later seems ..about 18cm.. to be growing the diameter. Because the number of bees was little, this crowd's speed of growth seems to be about the 20th originally slower than that of the first crowd.
It grows up well and it seems to go in the nest though bee's power is a little inferior to the first crowd. [Sunoko] of the ceiling is still seen well. (June 20, 2010)
