Maybe I'd better go back out n see which lid/roof is actually on my flow-hive .. Been having issues earlier .. It was the only colony that Swarmed on me. Queenie left cells but they didn't rekindle the Fire ! So finally requeened ... That wasn't instant back on track so to help I had one 5 frame deep Nuc that was only " So So " .. I made/did one of those "Newspaper Mergers". Now the the joined colony is fighting it's way up to a viable head-count to survive our winter a ways ahead. I'll be happy just to have the girls put up winter rations.
I had a second colony/hive that's 8 frame so in hopes of a Flow-Super dribble I moved it to that Fir House in HOPEs I might get to turn a harvest time Flow-Key n see something dribble into a jar or two. Our main flow is on so we will watch n see. Fir isn't totally up to snuf but way better than my actually Maple Hive/Flow-hive !
Nuc's n Queens (because of the longer, wetter, cooler atmospheric conditions have been a little disappointing this season. We got wet/cold stuff forecast again next 24 to 48 hours again. We are hanging on n surviving here in Puget Sound.
Here's couple pix's (one of my Flow-hive n other of another 8 frame hive (Fir Hive) that I topped with the 6 frame Flow-Super.
