One of my colonies appears to be very weak. It is actually a colony that I combined this fall from two swarms. They have ample stores and a laying queen but probably only 2-3 pounds of bees and brood on maybe 3 frames in various stages. The brood nest has moved up and there are frames in the bottom box that have not even been drawn. The bottom box had an August swarm and the top had a April swarm that went queenless due to MQS treatment so I combined them. The brood nest is in frames 2-4 and the rest of the frames in this box are full of stores. Most of the bees were on the brood rather than flying around trying to attack me.
