Swarm Hive - Adding On

I still had lots of bees outside the Swarm Hive and even though it's been hot, none of the other hives have been hanging out on the front porch. So Monday, I opened this hive to see if I could figure out what's going on.

Well, they were out of room! The super was full of honey and bees. I added the empty super from Hive #6. I didn't check anything - just added the empty super.

What a difference - this was not ten minutes later. So they just needed some more space.

This hive is full and I mean full of bees!
