Equalizing Hives

This week we moved hive 4 back to the apiary.  The hive successfully created a new queen after their queen was lost when we cut out the colony from the eve of the church.  To help it build up and be ready for winter we took some resources and brood from hive two and added it to hive 4.  With a laying queen and plenty of resources this hive should thrive.

We entered our summer harvest honey into the judged competition at the Fairfax 4-H fair.  We took first place in our class and are co-champions in the strained honey division.  Congratulations to everyone who helped work the bees and make this award possible.
