Well I like to post good news sometimes. I am happy to say that my inspection of my 2 hives yesterday was fabulous.
I introduced my SC starter strip frames into my hives 1-1/2 weeks ago. I replaced 4 frames in each hive (8 total). Well yesterday, when I checked on the frames, I could not believe that they already drew out the comb and they could have used a ruler for all I know, as the combs were totally straight top to bottom. They did a magnificent job on these starter strips.
I also introduced a few more frames of this SC starter strips. I will continue to just keep adding more of these frames in the next month or so.
The hives are doing so well, with plenty of pollen, brood and yes honey. All of a sudden we have another flow going now and the bees are shooting out like rockets (my first clue) and they have made lots more honey.
My poor sick hive which came back, is doing so great and I could hardly lift the top super it was so heavy with honey. Of course, I will not take any of this honey for me. If when winter approaches, I find there is extra honey, then I will freeze those frames of honey to feed back to them if necessary.
The little girls made me very happy yesterday. I look forward to going into winter now with 2 strong hives.
Thanks to all of you for the help.
