Spring Bee Check
I added a deep to Nuc #4. Nothing to Hive #6 and Nuc #3. Hive #4 and Nuc #1 just reversed the deeps. They have room and maybe in a couple of weeks, I'll add supers to all the hives. But for right now, I want the bees to fill out the brood boxes or deeps.
Very happy - started the winter with six hives and all six survived.
And I did get stung - twice, once on each foot. I need some different shoes or something.
This is the beeyard after adding the deeps and reversing the deeps. I had taken a nuc out and set it up thinking a split could be done. But we didn't see any queen cells. Maybe later.
