The other day I removed a bunch of cappings that I had put on top of the swarm colony in an Imri shim. The bees loved all these cappings, all the good stuff inside it and were done. So out it all came. I had some funny comb that I had cut off some frames that had some capped honey in them. I fed this to them next. The cappings and comb that were given to them are kept so nicely warmed by the heat from the colony (the cappings sit on top of the inner cover and they climb up through a hole to eat up there), that I bet they feel like they are in a bit of heaven.
The next time that I looked into the Imrie shim to see how they had made out with the comb cleaning they had done some surprising work.
They had altered the funny comb, built burr comb to hold it in place and had been building more comb on it. I tell ya, this colony of mine is a strange brew. I don't know if the pictures depict clearly enough what they were up to. But let your imagination run wild and maybe you can take a trip into their part of this world and get right into their heads!!! Have a wonderful and beautiful day, on our great earth. Cindi
