Temp was 61F and falling fast to an over night temp of 39F Oct 12th @ 5:30pm. I had all the screen bottoms open. All the hives are getting 2:1 Sugar water mix except BM # 1 which still has a honey super on, it is the far left one. Next to it on the right is the strongest colony which has 3 deeps of honey, one of which is going to be given to my weakest hive second from the right which is only one deep, It has the upper entrance closed due to yellow jacket robbing.
I'm comfused as to just what they are doing.
BM 1 hive with the honey super, they don't appear to be caught up in the frenzy.
BL 1 is a normal 2 deep hive. I have already removed the upper entrance.
BL 2 is so strong that 2 weeks ago they were bearded up 2 deeps high in the front at night so I added the third deep with new foundation. they have it all drawn out and only lack 2 1/2 frames of having it full of honey.
BL 3 was the one with the drone layer and got the new Queen at the end of July or mid August.
This is BL 4 my weakest hive and like 1,2 & 3 there is a lot of bees fighting around it. I think it is worse around this one really. I installed 1' x 3/8th inch entrance reducers yesterday with mouse guards.
