Bee Check Up

Friday afternoon I added more sugar syrup to the hives. The jar was empty and the other three hives needed syrup - their baggie were empty.
This photo is looking at the super on Nuc #2 - the baggie are put right on top of those bees. I did see right many hive beetles - a little surprised but nothing that can't be dealt with and it may be due to the baggies on top of the supers. I'll check on that later - lots and lots of bees though.

This is the front of Nuc #1 - lots of bees and activity. It's turning cold today (Sat afternoon) and possibility of snow Sun/Mon.
Glad I got them fed so they're all set for staying inside a couple of days.
