I completed my top entrance conversion this weekend by closing off the bottom entrances completely. I had about a week time when I left the entrance reducers on the bottom entrances and implemented the top entrances. Well, upon checking on my hive this afternoon on my way home from work this is what I saw.
And a 1 minute video...
This is the worst bearding by far on my strongest hive. My next strongest hive is the one on the far right. Did I mess up by implementing the top entrances? I also did a hive inspection and moved 3 frames (w/ nurse bees) of capped brood and 1 frame with eggs from my strongest hive to the hive on the far left because it is struggling. Please help!
