Sssssssssmokin!

We checked up on our hive and added some extra boxes. Not all the frames are full, but it’s better to be on time with adding space, to prevent swarming and overcrowding. Overall, everything looks good, but the 8-frame hive is still suffering from some frame instability (something we’re fixing in future frames). We also used the smoker for the first time, and it worked like a charm. I am somewhat skeptical of what it does to the bees, but it sure works well for calming them down.

Enjoy these pictures!
