The bees have been busy and it was long over time to put a new super on. I had gotten my bee keepers coat and hat in the mail just the other day (thanks ebay) and was now ready to try it again. I have to say, I was much calmer wearing the right equipment.
My son manned the smoker.
We opened the hive and checked the combs.
To my untrained eye, everything looked good. The bees had been working hard and there was activity on every comb that I looked at.
I'm not sure if we will get honey this fall - but these bees are looking really good to me.
We added the new super and closed up the hive.
Mission accomplished. I stayed cool as a cucumber.
