Busy as bees….

Just 4 weeks after adding the super, the bees are making lots of honey! Seven of the ten frames in the box have honey and are feeling quite heavy, though there is no capping yet, which the bees do when the honey is ‘just right’. When the majority of a frame is capped, this is an indication that the honey is mature enough to harvest.

Honey production well underway!

We also took the opportunity to check the brood box, and found a lot of activity there too.
