My Honeybees

Backyard Beekeeping

3/10/12 hive check

1 Comment

I checked on the hive over the weekend and took the top two supers off to inspect. The top brood box had the left side frames filled with dead bees. This is the side of the hive that gets the least amount of sun. I cleaned out the dead moldy bees and reset the frames. The brood boxes have about 4 frames off bees each and two frames of honey. The supers still have honey in the frames but it is spotty. I will check next week to see if the need feeding.

The bees were out flying and the temp was over 50 degrees.
