Bees been busy!

Went to check on hives today and found 8/13 needing new boxes! This is great news! Now we just need a little more rain to keep them flowers blooming and plants growing.    Kelsey looks over a frame of brood and pollen. The queen has already laid a batch of eggs on this one!  The lighter brown on the comb is baby bees nearly ready to hatch!   Best to be gentle when moving a thousand bees around. 

 A peice of empty comb we found up in the feeder. It was full of last years honey as food for them when we put it in. As you can seen they cleaned it out!

  

Just a little smoke to keep them calm.
