Ok, so we opened it up again today, lots and lots of capped honey.
Pulled out some of the full sized frames from the middle super below the excluder and 3rd frame we found the queen. Looks like brood, capped pollen then capped honey?
Also there is some weird comb near where the queen was...is this swarm cells, new queen cells? I had no where to put the frame with the queen on it, smoker went out, so i put it al back together.
Its such a mess in the middle super, lots of comb against the walls and lots of damage as you pull stuff out, not sure how much i should clean this or let them go for it.
One bee was attacking my face, i flicked my face mask and the bee landed on the dog and stung it - pretty darned funny actually :)
Big issue now is that the box i made to go on top is for 10 frames and mine are 8 (which everyone told me to get, but i thought i had 10 :( ) So now there is only 2 super for the whole hive until i get a new box tomorrow. Will they be ok for for 2 days like this?
