Checking Hive #4

Seems I've done a lot of checking on Hive #4.  Not sure about having a queen, what was going on in the hive, did they have wax moths - just lots of questions this summer.  But I checked on Sunday and lots of brood and bees.  Did see three wax moth worms on the top super but took them out and didn't see any signs of moths anywhere else.  Did see a few hive beetles but not as many as last time.  So, all in all, I'm thinking this hive will be fine.  I'll need to check later before cold weather sets in to make sure they have enough food.  But I'll do that for all the hives.
