Also did some combo of checker boarding and brood-rooming* today. (*brood-rooming isn’t an actual term. But I mean we just gave the brood area some empty space around it to hopefully dissuade swarming). #wethreebeeks #beekeeping
Watch for some waggle dancing from these ladies!
Little update on our girls.
My dad and I went to the hives today and put into practice something that we (as in #wethreebeeks) haven’t yet tried. We inverted our deep and shallow of out brood boxes, and then added a honey super on top of that. The shallow (green, fat left) is all pulled and had residual honey stuff in it from extracting, and the mediums (the third super up on the middle and right hives) are a mix of pulled (with out and without some honey or residue of honey), and unpulled frames. Split them as evenly as possible. #beekeeping
