Bee Update 7-25-2012
Yesterday I added 2 more frames of brood, and their nurse bees, to the weak hive. I also moved the brood nest to the bottom, and the honey to the top. This is how it should be, anyway, and I hope it will discourage any robbing having the honey in the top 2 boxes. Any robber bees will have to come into the hive and travel up, past my sentries. I am going to leave both hives alone for a couple of weeks and let them concentrate on raising babies and collecting food. As you can see in this video the weak hive is starting to show more bee activity. My fingers are crossed that things will soon be equalized between the 2 hives. I want them both to be strong and healthy before the winter sets in.
