Came home from work early so I had time to condense the hives for winter. To say they were not happy is a slight understatement. Eight stings in the first frame. Even had to resort to gloves, which I hate as they make you clumsy. Even with the gloves got two more through them.
Got one hive done but will do the rest on the weekend during the day and, hopefully, they will be calmer. Bit of a dearth here at the moment, so they will probably be stroppy again. Looking forward to that little encounter
