We've had several days of at least 60 degrees and sun, so today I decided to inspect and start mite treatment. I have two deeps and a medium. Here's what I found. Top medium: About two frames of capped brood and larvae. Not a lot, but some. Some pollen and some freshly capped honey as well as other frames being filled with wet stuff. That really surprised us, but then we thought the bees must be moving it up from the stores below. Top deep: Some brood and lots of old leftover capped stores from the winter. Some frames of pollen. We removed two of the honey-packed frames on either side of the brood area and replaced them with new foundation. Bottom deep: Again, quite a bit of leftover stores and some pollen-packed frames and some empty comb. No brood anywhere. We removed 5 frames of mostly empty comb, moved the remaining frames to the outside of the box and put 5 new frames of new foundation in the center of the box. I want the comb for my new package arriving in late April. We then removed the bottom deep and cleaned off the BB, where we found much of the sugar we had poured onto the inner cover 3 weeks ago.:lol: Next, we placed the middle deep and the medium super (now becoming a brood box) on the BB and the formerly bottom deep is now on top of the hive. We also treated with ApiGuard before closing things up. There were lots of bees. Any comments on how we handled this? Also, some of the leftover capped honey cappings were dark brown. Is that normal?
