The Dink hive has lost its queen again. That's four this summer, for various reasons. Sorry looking lot ... cutting our losses on them. Curiously, they don't seem to be getting robbed out.
The strong hive put on another 5 pounds this week. They're doing this all with forage. They've had more flow in what should be the dearth than they had during what should have been the flow. They're at 150 pounds now. We harvested about 25 lbs from them in July, and we're contemplating stealing a couple more frames. They continue to selectively purge drones, but still have them.
The two indoor nucs hold our breeder queens. We checked the newer queen and she has not geared down for winter yet ... brood all over the place. That nuc has also put away enough stores for winter, although with some feeding. The other nuc has a solid medium of capped honey already and is working on a second, and was also full of brood at last check. Neither nuc has been seen molesting their drones yet.
We have another strong hive and one that's so-so but appears to be recovering after a brood shutdown during the unseasonal June dearth.
