All is well

Nothing to report this week. I have pretty much left the girls alone to do there thing. I am thinking about putting a honey super on now that there population is increasing and they are probably thinking about massive honey production. I need to do a little more research to find out if the time is really right.

The only other concern at this time is swarming. I'd hate for the ladies to move on but, hey, that's the nature of things. I am considering putting a hive body with empty frames next to the hive in the hope that if they do swarm this might be inviting to them and I could end up with two hives. It would save me the trouble of dividing them myself.

Here is a link to a neat report I heard on NPR about bee dancing.
