    One of my hives has changed. This hive used to have 1 8 frame deep and several of the mediums above it used for brood. Now I only see larvae of all ages and capped brood on 6 of 8 frames in the deep and everything else including the 2 8 frame mediums above are honey. Could they be gearing up for winter already?

    They are geared up for the dearth after the honey flow. It is normal summer activity.
