October 9th: Checked Top Box

I looked in the 10-frame deep box that I had set on top of the hive, above an inner cover, so that I could make the 4 deep frames with left-over honey and nectar available to the bees to clean up from inside the hive.

As I suspected, in six days they had cleaned up the honey, but there was still quite a bit of nectar on a couple of frames.  There were a number of bees working on these frames, but not a lot.

I will give them another week.
