    Default late aug insepction

    Couple of pics from last sat. Pulled a single honey super off. Nothing came off this hive.

    Pics are middle 2 frames from the top of a double deep hive. (a swam capture from this spring)







    top pic shows some new plastic foundation that i used this year.

    bottom is a foundationless from either this year or last.

    full size links depending on how you view the above pics.

    Nice brood pattern.
    There is a cell on the bottom of the second frame is it empty?

    Still making drones, a sign of a healthy well fed hive.

    Make sure they have room to expand, just from the look of those two frames I can imagine this hive is packed full of bees. Now without the super they may be crowded a bit.
