Well, I guess you can tell that I haven't been here for awhile. =/
Small cluster but they look fine.
Trouble! No honey, just nectar.
Should I combine this hive with another?
Closed the hive up, and put on the mouse guard.
Whoa. Many more bees here!
And honey too!
But will there be enough to carry them through the winter?
Would there be enough, if I combined the other hive with this one?
I'd have to find the queen, and I think they may have replaced her. =/
Closed up and done, guarded from the mice. Still a little mad at me, but they calm down quickly.
Pulled a few weeds while I was there. Looks much better. It's the hive on the left that has honey. I also don't like how the tops don't sit flat with the sugar board in. Imirie shims are on order to fix that.
