10 days ago the hives were drawing and filling a super per week. The super count was about 25 % ahead of last year at this time. The brood nest was three plus boxes deep.
Supers put on a week ago are still being drawn but at a much slower pace. The brood nest is being back filled with nectar, as the queens have slowed by about half. It is like a switch was turned. This bee behavior matches the local blooming. Lots of flowers appeared a month early, and are now spent.
