Adding super

Wed, July 6

Today I completed the section super for the top of the hive and put it in place.  Tried working the hive without a bee suit.  No aggressive behavior and no stings.  The bees are working hard and bringing in a lot of nector, so I thought they could use someplace to store it, making more brood comb available to expand the hive.  They are still working hard, filling the voids with comb from the switch last week.  Should see improvements in a couple of weeks when the new brood arrives.
