I had my hive inspected yesterday, the bees are now covering 9 1/2 out of 11 frames, and we only found 2 beetles. So, I think that the premise of a strong hive is correct. My traps haven't really caught many more beetles either, so I think they have started defending themselves better.

Glad to hear it

On the outer Barcoo where the churches are few,
   And men of religion are scanty,
On a road never cross'd 'cept by folk that are lost,
   One Michael Magee had a shanty.

Now this Mike was the dad of a ten-year-old lad,
   Plump, healthy, and stoutly conditioned;
He was strong as the best, but poor Mike had no rest
   For the youngster had never been christened,
