    Well, that is also the lawncare and 4 wheeler trailer....so must have been a dip in the road in town...or the rough terrain at the deer lease.

    Two problems with the photos.

    1.wrong color boxes... Good job on the repaint.

    2.No open lids to see the pumped up mamas.

    Why the excluder on number one? splits?

    Was going to show the lids open, but started getting going and bees were everywhere...really needed to get done.

    There are 3 excluders total....left hive wanted to keep the queen in one chamber. The other one was to keep her from getting into the 2 boxes of brood that i put on top...same for the other hive.

    Cannot tell you that, all I know is that the bees are covering them.

    1. Not sky blue
    2. The tops aren't quite being pushed off.

    Nice anyway.
