Day 16 and all's well
« on: May 10, 2008, 04:34:00 PM »
I checked my new hive today and am happy with their progress.
They have really been busy and have most all the frames drawn and have what looks like to me, lots of good capped brood, some pollen stored and capped honey at the tops of the brood frames, so I added a medium super.
I still didn't see the queen, but I know she has to be there, with all the capped brood.
I removed the hive top feeder, as it was low and what was left was getting moldy around the edges. 
They didn't seem to mind my checking in on them, and were pretty calm.
I was surprised to have to add that super so quickly, and have purchased another medium super to have ready for the next addition.
