Yesterday I inspected the hive I installed from a package in early May. 2 weeks ago I added a super above the hive chamber.
In this weekend's inspection I noted that the bees have been building some comb on tops and bottoms of frames. This is burr comb, right? So what should I do with it?
I scraped it off, but was unsure what to do with that wax. I let some of it fall down to the screened bottom board, and some more I left just outside the hive. Any suggestions for my future inspections?
FYI also got my first sting, when I was reassembling the hive. I think I crushed a few bees when putting the super back on, and gee, they didn't like that.
