well after we had serious rain and thunder storms for 10 out of 12 days recently....the bees have emerged to a high amount of blooms. i checked a few days ago for the first time during that time and did some manitenance today and popped a few lids....to find that all of the hives had built up 9 out of ten frames (foundationless) and are packing them aggressively !
one hive has actually built all ten and packed 8 with 2 middles already being 50% capped ! i put a ross round super on it and hopefully they fill that sucker up hahaha.
the nucs i had made to overwinter should end up having atleast one full medium of honey each for winter.
really really excited !
