First year beekeeper. I know I've already touched on this subject a bit, and someone else a few days ago. But would you add another box at this point? Just took these photos around 7:30 pm. I added a box in June and am considering adding another, although I'm not sure if I should just let them hang with 3 boxes to ensure that they fill the top two or add another one.
Also, I'd like to get the weeds down around the hive, I have a 24v battery powered weed whacker, would that be too much for them? It's obviously not as loud as a gas powered one and I could probably get it done pretty quick. It'd be real close to the hive. Maybe during the day when they're busy foraging?
