Beekeeping, Gardening and Quilting in Eastern Wake County, North Carolina

Tuesday, May 1, 2012


Today Mr. Ellis and I checked the bees again.  I had picked up some foundation for him so his trip was twofold.  Not much change today - just checking to make sure all the hives have room. 
Added a super to the Swarm Hive. Nuc #1 - switched 4 filled out frames of honey from Nuc #4.  I had added a super on 4/10/12 to Nuc #1 but they had done nothing toward filling the frames.  Was concerned about wax moths with all that space now that it's gonna be so hot.  
Lots of bees in all the hives and the biggest drones I've ever seen.  
Everything looks good.
