Bee Update

The super we added to the hive 2 weeks ago is already filling up! This frame is from near the center- the yellow cells have baby bees in them and the white ones are filled with honey.White caps have been added to the completely filled cells but most of the non-capped ones are nearly full and will be capped off soon. All by the very outer frames are completely covered in honey comb in various stages. I wonder when we’ll need to add another super. We hadn’t planned on adding another one this year but they are filling it up faster than we expected!

 

This is one of the frames from the bottom, almost completely filled with baby bee larvae:
