I’m a new beekeeper this year and have 2 flow hives. I have a pesky bear who has gotten to my Hives 3 times. We have since built a fence and solved that problem. I have checked the Hives twice since the bear incidents. It’s been a little over 2 weeks since the last bear attack and I did my second check yesterday.
One of the Hives is recovering well. I saw a full frame of honey and a full frame of brood, lots of bees and activity.
The other Hive has less bees and I am unsure about brood. Are these salmon colored combs full of uncapped brood? If so, what is the salmon colored material on top of the brood?
Thanks for your help.
