I have uploaded a new video to YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Thanks to my cousin-in-law, Ivan, for accompanying me out to the bee yard last week. Although we didn’t see the queen, we got some nice close-up shots of my hive and bees.
This video shows a problem that I encountered during the inspection: One of my unwired wax foundation frames had collapsed. I’m not sure whether it was due to the fact that I forgot to push the frames tightly together when I added the new box, or because of the warm weather we’ve had around here lately.
I had to trim out the comb that was causing problems. Was this the best way to handle the problem? I’m not sure. What do you think? I’d love to know how other people would deal with this.
