how do you know if a hive is honey-bound
Monday I had a hive swarm that I had been checking weekly. it has been hot and humid here. I have running water available and lots of shade at the site and must have missed the queen cells on weekly inspections
I did capture the swarm and hived it but the old hive had 3 suppers not drawn but the 2 hive bodies weigh about 70 lbs each
You sound honey bound by the weight. Look at the second box if the frames are full it is bound.
