I checked my hives today and noticed that one is full of brood. The fall flow has just fully developed and the bees are busy. I was concerned because my hive has alot of brood in both the bottom and top deep (quite alot of drone brood also). Shouldnt they be trying to store up for winter. The other hive seems to be doing what I expected. Most upper deep combs are being capped with one or two of the middle ones having brood, the bottom deep being mostly brood with a few frames of capped honey on each side. By the way, this is the first week I have had any brood in the upper deeps.......until now they have just been drawing out foundation and storing in the upper deep. These are first year hives from packages in April.
