Fall Harvest in the Spring

I pulled the excess honey from 4 hives today. Yes.. 4 hives. Some of my friends know the math on the box weight…. Take a wild guess as to the weight of the boxes/honey. All hives that were doubled up with brood (2 deeps high) were split. The hives with the highest population showed signs of wanting to swarm soon (open queen cells, with royal jelly & developing queens in them) – so I gave them room, and created new hives with the 2nd box of bees – making sure to provide queen cells so they can have a mated queen laying eggs ASAP.11083709_704905472951166_7882385670762019299_o
