Alan's Bee Chronicles-Checking Up on the Bees

I decided to check on the bees after I completed the third API VAR treatment two weeks ago and feeding the bees a vinegar sugar syrup. I was curious about the mite kill and I wanted to feed them more vinegar sugar syrup.

All three of the hives look fairly healthy, the queens in all the hives are laying eggs and the honey storage looks pretty good. The hive I caught earlier this year is probably the weakest of the hives. I'm going to look at increasing the bee count going into fall, so I'll continue to feed them sugar syrup for a few more weeks. I also put some of the LeFore Essential Oil Patties onto each of the hives in between the bottom brood chamber and the top brood chamber.I decided to check on the bees after I completed the third API VAR treatment two weeks ago and feeding the bees a vinegar sugar syrup.
