Today, My Fella suited up to remove a super* and consolidate the frames**.
For some reason, our bees prefer to fill every OTHER frame with honey.
They also like producing propolis, possibly even more than they like producing honey or wax. Right now, we’ve got a sizable wodge*** of soft, fragrant resin sitting in a shot-glass in the kitchen cabinet…
Anyway, recalcitrant smoker notwithstanding, it was a fairly quick and easy operation. Almost not worth blogging about.
And here’s the slightly shorter hive, all reassembled.
