Now thats bearding!

If this were a contest, I’d be a contender!


hot or do they just need more room?

Both. Mostly hot though. Pulling the flow frames this weekend and adding 2 medium supers and a feeder.

My girls did the exact same thing in May. I had to collect them out of my raspberry bushes the next day when they swarmed. :open_mouth:

I was glad that I had been reading the forum and that I was prepaired. Shook them into a nuc, let the stragglers join their sisters in the nuc and started a new hive the next day.

Everyone’s comments, Bobbee’s wonderful videos and the pictures you all post have helped a lot.

I think that the bees have seen your beard, Bobby, and now they are trying to compete! :smiling_imp:


I’d left the bottom board cover in place from when I’d harvested on Saturday. I took it out just after snapping this…and got stung.

Twice. LOL

What a lovely beard you have :wink:
