First Inspection, New Hives

The last two weeks got away from me; by the time I got into the hives the ladies had managed to draw out about seven of the ten frames and build some burr comb where the missing frame was. They were extremely docile and seemed to be going strong.

While I was suited up, I also peeked into the other two older hives. Even with the early season swarming the hives were overrun with bees. They hadn’t began to pull on the frames in the supers, but I expect them to soon.

Here are some pics from the inspection:
