Yesterday we had an interesting day. This is not supposed to happen but it is such a cool picture. Plus, we learned something & learning is always good!
As you saw in our video last week, ( https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=frfpKd7VW2o ) we removed a few frames to pour the bees into the box. Then we placed the inner cover over the bottom box & we put the feeder on top of the inner cover. We then placed a hive box around the feeder and placed the outer lid on top.
The bees were supposed to build their comb on the inside on the frames, but they built it on the top because they had extra room in there.
This was a shocker when we open it up! 😳
We ended up scraping the combs off the top and putting the bees back in their hive.
We will check the hive again in 3 days after this rain goes away.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=frfpKd7VW2o
