Yesterday, David and Scott came to help this old gimpy woman by taking the honey off my six hives. Well, it wasn't quite completely capped yet (it's always really humid in these parts), so the boxes stayed on and they did a lot of bottom supering since my girls are going gangbusters. Then they moved on to splitting my monster hive. This hive is so full of bees that despite sbb and slatted rack, they are bearded on the hive front and back--the only hive in my beeyard that is bearding. Anyway, they did a wonderful split that gave me two monster hives instead of one. Funny thing is, last night and again this morning when I went out to the chickens, the original hive, although having been given another brood box and another honey box, is still bearding!! What's the deal and should I be concerned?
