Hive Check 3 August

The remaining hive is doing well, shades of last year, numbers are growing but they are resisting moving onto new foundation. However I'm sure they will when they are ready. We saw the queen and lots of brood. There was a fair amount of pollen too which we spaced away a little to encourage more comb building and putting down of stores. We saw a few wasps trying to rob stores so put in the entrance block to reduce down the opening and allow the guard bees to protect the hive more efficiently.
