Alan's Bee Chronicles - Oh Sweet Honey!
Posted on August 23, 2012.
I decided to check on the swarm hive that I captured recently to see how they were as I had added a honey super. I noticed that the bees were "hanging" on the outside during the day, and found that the entire second box of the brood chamber had been converted to honey storage by the bees. The photo above is of one of the beautiful honey frames that they built, filled and capped. I decided to remove some of these frames and put in new frames so that they will work on building those out and filling with brood so the colony remains strong enough over the winter.
