|Hive 6 with its newly added, painted deep super.|
|Hive 1 -- see how many bees were in the air?|
After the chaotic addition of supers due to the population explosion and discovery of brood built between the boxes, he called me. I rushed home from work, took notes on the three remaining hives, and snapped pictures.
|Brood built in the wrong place = dead baby bees. Gross.|
In short, he added a deep and medium super to hives 1, 5, & 6. Moved a feeder from 5 to 2. We'll add deeps to the others this week.
|Empty brace comb = wasted effort for the bees, more wax for candles.|
|Empty supercedure cell = possibility they requeened themselves.|
|Hive 5 needs re-leveling after the flood!|
|Three expanded hives, with some lost bees on the back of Hive 1.|
