A few days ago I posted about our season turning nasty (Season turned bad). Following on from that I noticed one of my strongest hives appearing to be going down. Well that was a mistake, talk about grumpy! I had played with a queen excluder on my two strongest hives and they did not like them. They just backfilled the brood with honey. Each hive has a FULL super of honey and a backfilled brood box so the super is now on top and the brood box has been honeycombed so they have room. Looks like I will be harvesting next weekend.
The difference between the weak split needing feeding and these two brutes is amazing. Keep your hives strong!
