Hive check

Hives June 16

On Sunday we carried out a hive check. This was not a detailed look. We simply looked at a couple of brooder frames in each hive and some of the super frames. One hive has not yet started using its super, one hive is what I call "in recovery stage" (it survived the winter but was weak though it is now improving) and the rest were strong with supers filling with honey. One hive in particular has come close to filling its super so we added a second to the hive. Overall, it's looking like there will be a good honey crop this year.
