Weekly Inspection

Weather: Sunny/81

Hive "A": Lots of stores and lots of bees. Seen eggs, and brood in all stages. They are building comb like crazy.

Hive "A-1": Still no queen and they are out off eggs to make a queen but I have a queen coming a week from this Monday. They have been building up comb and filling it with pollen and sugar syrup.

Both hives will need new boxes very soon so it looks like another trip to dadant. I'm not sure if I want to add another deep or just add a honey super for now for hive "A". For hive "A-1" they will need to move out of the nuc and into a deep but I will do that after the new queen has been released and is laying.
