Well, the deed is done. We robbed the hives. I am very please with my honey! We got just over 300 lbs. and it is a beautiful, pale, amber color... This years hives actually had 3/4 supers drawn and capped. I had to leave seven supers (on various hives) because they were not capped. So, I'll be doing this again in a week or so!
The hot hive was bearable
. They were not too concerned with the new queen and her royal workers. Just going about their business.
There were several things that I will have to change about my methods of robbing them and when...
Everyone around here robs their hives around July 4>>>don't know why that's just how they do it and they say it is the best time.... Thanks for the 'light' kick! Debbie
