Mouse nest in the hive
We'd get a lot more honey if we fed our bees more. But I try to use sugar water as a last resort, only feeding when the bees wouldn't have enough stores to survive without the helping hand.
And also time to take
apart the hive to get rid of that mouse nest. From my aborted photo, I'd
assumed that I really needed to get into the bottom box to deal with
the mouse, but it turns out that I could have just lifted up the whole
hive the way you do when you nadir
and cleaned off the bottom board that way. Because the mouse hadn't
damaged any of the comb in the bottom box at all, as I discovered when I
broke warre rules and took the hive apart.
