The hive is buzzing

Our inspection today was very similar to last week. The last frames in the brood box are now all drawn out and are being filled quickly. There is still no change in the super however the main nectar flow is in July so there is still a chance that we will get some honey this year.

Despite no babies emerging yet the hive looks healthy with bees and the work is ongoing. The hive was literally buzzing. However we have still not seen the Queen. There is sealed brood, larvae and eggs so she is laying well over most of the frames.

The stores are heaving with honey, nectar and pollen. Honey is on every frame and they are incredibly heavy to lift.

Hopefully next week we will see the new bees emerging and some movement in the super.
