My Honeybees

Backyard Beekeeping

Hive check 7/11/12

I check on the older hive where the swarm cells were found from on Sunday. There were more cup cells with larva in them that I must have missed. These were just cup cells with small larva in them, not capped. I scraped six small cups off the edge of frames in the supers.

The bees are storing lots of honey now. I hope the remaining capped brood in the supers will emerge soon so the bees can finish storing honey in the supers.

It was 100 degrees during the day, so I waited until 8 pm to work the hive.
