Thanks for asking
Via the video feed, the bee numbers look like they are increasing, that is to say, there is more activity on the outside of the outer drawn frames. I will be opening the hive up on the weekend to do a physical check.
While the hive is open I will be permanently mounting video cameras internally, to both ends of the hive, and changing out the current follower boards for an alternate design that hopefully will provide an improved view on the secret life of bees.
The current follower boards block the view of the bee space between the bottom of the frames and the floor, and the bee space between the front and back of the frames and the walls.
Currently, it looks like the bees are preferencing the top bee space over the bottom and I cannot confirm front and rear bee space usage due to the current follower board design. I would really like to be able to record the bee activity across all bee spaces.
