In keeping with the plan to reduce swarming, I added a super of drawn comb to all the hives. Per the checker boarding directions I alternated empty comb frames with capped honey in the top two supers. There is good bee cover on the comb and capped brood that will be emerging in several days. I added candy and protein supplement to all the hives yesterday and the protein was covered with bees today. There was lots of pollen coming in mostly grey colored. I found some nectar being stored. Since I’m not feeding syrup the bees are finding something they like.
