As you can see from the video FB post, there’s a lot of traffic in and out of the hive–fall nectar flow. That kind of traffic makes for a happy beekeeper! It’s so hard not to look into the hive more frequently than I should, but I’ll get to check what’s going on inside over the weekend. Watching the activity from the outside makes me feel like I’m going to see that a lot of work has been done on the inside! I hope that there’s enough pollen and nectar stored that I have to add another super so these girls will have lots of food for the winter. Nectar must be good since they are not taking much of the sugar water–they know where the good stuff is.
Just a bit of frustration, though certainly not with the bees, but my telescoping cover seems a little cattywampus so I’ve got yellowjackets in the top super where the feeders are located. BUT, they can neither get into the hive nor can the bees get into that super. I need to find a solution to that.
(I also need to find a video converter so that I can post videos here–I’m so impressed with the traffic in and out–there’s no way to capture it on a still unless you’re very lucky.)
