Hello Ladies....

Today was a day to check on the bees. Their jar of sugar syrup has a bit in it so I left them to finish and alleviate some of the work they have drawing out the comb. I had hoped to fill the second brood box with the rest of the frames but his will have to wait until the syrup snacking is through.

I took the opportunity to flip the entrance reducer. I think they are getting organized enough that a larger opening is a good idea. I inadvertently flipped their entrance to the opposite side. It caused a bit of confusion as you can see.

Once the larger entrance was positioned where the original entrance was all seemed to be right with the hive.

Aren't they amazing?
