The hot weather will get the nectar flowing all this week. Keep ahead of the bees. It is still June, if the weather gives us some more rain, this nectar flow may turn into something big.
I have stopped looking for swarm cells. When the supers start getting heavy, that is the limit. Usually the swarming behavior wanes during a good nectar flow. It never goes away, but neither does a sore back.
|When adding new frames and foundation, always put the new box closest to the brood boxes or on top of the queen excluder|
|the new box of frames is on top of the queen excluder, the super which was quite heavy but not finished yet, goes on top.|
|Another strategy: Put new undrawn frames in the center of a box with drawn frames|
|Or, put one frame of drawn comb in the center of the new frames|
|The beeyard is getting taller. I ran out of supers. The hives should all have one more super on top.|
