Sorry for the poor pic but my IPhone is black and we know what bees think of THAT color plus they are pretty grumpy with the constant probing of robbers, but here is a (poor!) pic of yet another mass drone eviction.
This makes 3 mass evictions this year that I am certain of and there are plenty of drones to be thrown out-yet my queens are still laying worker brood quite well for this time of year here in Western KY.
My inspection today shows an average of another one and a half supers of honey per hive capped and ready to be removed.
I can't imagine what a bumper year for honey this would have been if they weren't feeding all those drones because its been an above average year WITH the little buggers!
Good Luck, Mike
