    Default Orange bloom

    Dont know how everyone down in Florida is faring in the groves, but I just returned late last night. We divided several colonies and put another deep on them with empty foundation. Most of the colonies had 2-3 supers with honey and we added additional ones. We made 26 Nucs as well. The colonies were busting at the seems and in several I found swarm cells. In three empty boxes I found swarms with queens that had built comb from lid to bottom board. 20130309_122025.jpg20130309_131839.jpg20130309_132821.jpg20130309_133228.jpg20130309_140302.jpg

    Nothing like a honey flow to bring health and vigor to a hive.
