We took 2 steps forward and one step backward this year. We got 2 new hives but lost one of our older hives. We did get Honey from the other older hive though.

I went out today to find this branch with bees on the ground.
May 19, 2019
Added 5 more frames to the Long langstroths and checked the honey progress in the other 2 hives.
April 27, 2019
They seem to be doing good now. Eggs and larvae in both hives.
April 13, 2019
The new bees had a rough start but Hopefully they are ok now.

Putting our new bees in their Long Langstroth homes.

For the two packages we are about to get we decided to try them in some Long Langstroth hives.
March 24, 2019
Both hives swarmed within a few days of each other.

Looks like we had a moisture problem that caused the black on the edges of the frames. We may have also had a little too much space between 2 frames because the bees built come in between the frames. Other than that, I think they look good.

Hive 1 was full except for the end frames so I moved those to the middle. Hive 2 was completely full...

It may have been caused by us not getting the honey supers on yet...
November 04, 2017
Seems like a lot of hive beetles and not as full as I thought it would be.
July 23, 2017
The first two supers are mostly full so I went ahead and added a third one.

We have capped and uncapped brood in both hives! Bees are amazing!
June 10, 2017
What looked like queen cells are empty now and I think I saw uncapped brood in Hive 1. I guess all we can do at this point is wait and see what happens.
May 25, 2017
I still don't see any uncapped brood in either hive but It does appear that both hives have queen cells.
May 15, 2017
It looks like we lost our queens.
April 27, 2017
Long live the Queen!

It's 2017 and we are installing two packages. We are trying all medium supers this time.
In 2014 we bought one hive and a nuc but it did not go so well.
