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.
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!
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.
What a lovely beard you have
