Warm Weather, Chance to Peak Into the Hives

As the mild weather continued, Amy and I got a chance to peak into the hives. Our two hives from last summer made it through the winter; one is thriving, the other hanging in there. Of our two older hives, one did not survive; this hive was weak going into the winter having swarmed numerous times in late fall. The other of the two older hives is strong and frankly a little aggressive. Anytime anyone tries to work with them they come buzzing out intent on inflicting a few stings. A couple of the ladies even followed Amy and I around after we had closed the hive and begun putting the equipment away. I believe requeening is in order, but I will have to enlist the help of a more experience beekeeper to help me with this endeavor.

Here are some pics from the hives:
