Opening the bee hive

Here is a video showing opening one of our bee hives. You can see honey and capped pollen. The bees have moved higher in the frames than we expected, which may indicate queen issues. The bees seem to be healthy.

We expected more capped honey than is shown. That may mean the nectar didn’t flow as early as last year. By this time in 2016 we took 10 pounds of honey out of this hive. This year so far – none.
