Bee space

Anna and the beesOur bee colonies continue to thrive and grow. Today was the day to install additional supers for the 3 new hives.

We decided to put the new containers on the bottom in an effort to encourage upward building.

If honey bees feel like they're running out of space they might be tempted to swarm, which would be a bad thing at this stage in their development. We need the hive to stay whole and grow even stronger so they can make it through the upcoming winter.
