We started off with 2 nucs. Today we added a medium box of frames and foundation to both hives. The deep super on the bottom is mostly full and the bees were building comb on the inner cover. It seems each hive has it's own personality. The hive with more sulight seems to be a little stronger and calm when we work them while the hive in the shade has a few less bees and I refer to this hive as the "pms" hive....always grouchy. The wife took 3 stings tonight and pulled 5 stingers out of her bee glove. I've yet to be stung even though tonight I had holes in my jeans. I tell her she must be sweeter lol. I wasn't going to include her in my beekeeping venture because I knew she wasn't an insect person but now I can tell she genuinely cares about the well being of the bees. Her getting stung was a result of trying to brush off all the bees on the covers so they wouldn't be crushed. They are taking ALOT of sugar syrup. I'm hoping I'm not doing them an injustice by feeding them and not making them go forage for their own food. I see lots of bees coming in with bright yellow clumps on their legs (pollen I assume) so some are out working.
