Well tomorrow I have the State Apirist coming to inspect the hive. Speaking on the phone, he seemed like a nice guy and we talked a bit about what was going to happen. This will be a full inspection every frame.
He is mostly concerned with foul brood and one other disease which I can't remember. I am confident that I have no such problem. But he said that even if it was present it didn't mean the end of the hive. All in all I think it is a good decision for me to have this done.
The hive was strong and busy at my last inspection, but activity is way down and the girls have stopped taking sugar water about 2 weeks ago
There are still flights going in and out but it's more like podunk airport instead of O'Hare.
Here is what the weather is looking like
