TBH expanding

Checked the TBH  again today and they are working on all 13 bars so I added 3 more to the open end side.  I put in 1 1/2" bars and left 1/4" space between the bars to promote honey production.  With so much brood I think I'm going to have to watch for late season swarming, but since I haven't been getting any calls for the last 2 weekends I could use them for joining with my first swarm hive which will need the help for the winter buildup.  Scheduled to close up the bee tree this week.  They are calling for rain on Tues. so that would keep them home and the deadly deed would be more effective.  Although, I still have 2 more days to entice the queen out.  Later
