August 1st: Added another Super

Checked the hive.  All three boxes.  Didn’t see the queen.  All brood activity is still in the original, bottom, deep box.  Only about two frames of brood this time.

They’re putting nectar and honey in the second box (below the queen excluder where I was hoping the queen would move up so that I can eventually get rid of that deep box).  And the top box, above the excluder is probably 60% full of nectar and honey.  It was quite heavy.

I added another super on top of it with one foundationless frame that was about 2/3 drawn-out and nine 100% beeswax frames.

Shot a video which I hope to add to this post.
