Sometime in July we switched Bethany’s split into a deep.
We put all five of the frames that were in the nuc in the deep and added four empty frames and a feeder. We fed them so that they would be built out enough when winter comes.
Here is Bethany smoking the entrances of all the hives and Abigail opening her hive. Notice the deep and the nuc. The nuc if leaning on the deep to encourage the bees to go into the deeps entrance.
Miriam our sister is watching from afar because she doesn’t like to go into the bees.
We moved Bethany’s hive into the nuc! Now We have five hives!
