5th Inspection

Posted by on August 27, 2012

I ventured inside the hive today, and was in for a minor disappointment. While the hive itself is rockin’ with the original brood box chock-full-o’-bees/honey/brood, the lower medium super has barely any comb drawn out – perhaps only 1/8 of a single frame after two weeks. So as we are about to enter the Fall, I am worried that the ladies won’t have enough food stored for the winter. To combat this, I am going to build a modified upper entrance candy feeder. This should help with their food stores, as well as with any bottom entrance issues over the winter such as snow build up and mouse invasions.

Beekeeping: Half art, half angst.
