Goldie Inspection

Today we did an inspection on the Goldie hive, we checked the two supers, the new one that we added last time has been drawn out but not much Nectar. There was no condensation at all today, I suspect that the hole in the lid liner is making a difference,  Margaret doesn’t agree but that’s OK.  Every Bee keeper has a different opinion of what to do ๐Ÿ™‚ The lower one has a bit of capped honey, but not enough to extract the frames. Checked the upper brood and all looks good didnโ€™t check the lower one as the day was ending and the foraging Bees were returning home. Added a new super, one of our kiwimana ones that we built.  Hope the girls like it, we made one of the handles look like a Kiwi ๐Ÿ™‚ Queen Excluder was full of comb and nectar, which is a real pain isnโ€™t it. Took loads of wax from the hive. Will make some more candles for the winter power cuts that we seem to get around here. No stings today, managed to keep calm…and so did the Bees. See ya…Gary
