I was able to get into both hives this past weekend, but only got pictures of the 2nd hive. Had to split the inspections between 2 days, 1st hive on Friday, 2nd hive on Saturday, as it was so hot out right away. I hate the heat . The 1st frame i took out was full of honey, the 2nd and 3rd were a mix of pollen, honey, brood, lots of drone cells. Then the next 4 frames were packed with brood. The last, 8th, was similar as well.
The 2nd box had about 3 of 8 frames built out, lots of pollen, but I didn’t get any pictures at it was rather boring.
Didn’t find the queen, I used smoke for the 1st time this year so maybe she went into hiding. I had my son taking pictures and a friend over, so didn’t want to have bees all over the place.
Feel free to make comments and/or suggestions if you see anything.
And lots and lots of brood, eggs, larvae etc.
