This weekend, we were inspecting our hives in Hunterdon and Morris Counties. Some of those hives are already "exploding" with bees! We put more honey supers on all hives. We were even able to make some "splits." Splits are new hives which we make by taking a few frames loaded with bees and brood and tranferring to a "nuc" box. We let them build up in thiese smaller hive boxes. When they are "ready" (strong enough), we transfer them to a larger hive box. Here are four we brought home from one of our locations.
