I combined my two weak hives last Sat. and yesterday I did the inspection. Most of the paper(that was between the hive bodies was shreaded and some thrown on the ground in front of the hive. I was surpised that the paper was in such large strips! But the bees had emptied the feed and filled the comb with it.Even found small amounts of sugar crystalson the tops to the frames?They were busy bringing in pollen from the Golden Rod and buckwheat that is in full bloom. I was unsure if I should open up the hive becasue there were so many yellow jackets flying around and landing on the side of the hive very close to the bottom board. I mashed alot of them. staying there for a about 30 min. to watch. I never saw a yellow jacket enter but they sure were close. I put an entrance reducer on to help the bees if there was a robbing in process. I went into the hive and did not see any YJ but the bees were very clam and working together. I actual saw one queen.
