I wents into the hive today to check on progress, and the population is booming. They are starting to draw comb in the upper box and even on the underside of some of the frames. I want a neat and clean hive, so I scraped off the burr comb as well as these two excess pieces, which were already full of eggs. It’s sad to lose the eggs, but it makes for a cool picture. See the little white guys (actually girls, in all likelihood)? Those are the eggs.
