You know I can't go anywhere.
I had 10 days in Chicago to work on a project. I ask my wife to keep an eye on the hives. I knew it was close to getting ready to swarm. However I was hoping I could wait because I had to go to Chicago and in the moring I have to go to Tallahassee and then Miami and then Sarasota. So outside of tonight I am pretty much screwed until this weekend.
Well I got home a little after 8 pm and I go and my nuc has bees busting at the seams, literally. The entrance to the hive is so packed I can't believe it.
So at 8:30 pm I am going in and taking a peek in the hive.
darn, it is crowded in there. Every frame is covered with bees.
I have ordered some medium frames and a couple of medium boxes. However that won't arrive until after the weekend. I have a deep box and deep frames. I could use those if I have to.
So here is my question:
Do I move my bees tonight into a deep or do I wait until the weekend?
Nothing like a late night issue to bring one home again. I thing the honey-do list is looking better, because I can always put off the items that are on it.
