I've had my first hive in 20+ yrs. started now for about 6 wks. They are doing great.
But they're doing something today I've never observed before with the dozen or so hobby hives I used to have. They are hanging in strings and clusters off of the front of the hive--about 3 six inch clusters.
Is there anything unusual that this might be indicating?
1) Nest is full of honey
2) Too little space
3) Too little ventilation
4) Too good honey flow
See what is inside. Do they have queen cells?
Put more supers
Put entrance wider
Lear about situation and the sign. See inside.
