These are the splits I made from my original two hives. These hives are at the Walkers' house.
Everything looks good so far. I put the nuc of bees into it's own deep super.
I did make a mess of the paint job though. My red paint pen was very runny, and my gloves are covered in pink paint too.
I hope it doesn't bother the bees too much. I really hope I haven't messed anything up for my queens!
This is what they look like now:
Later, I went to check on the hives that I pulled the splits from.
Not too over-crowded, check!
Making some wonderful honey, check!
And, starting to draw out the new comb, check!
I alternated the new comb with the drawn comb, we'll have to see how that goes.
