Adding Another Box Deep On My Bee Hives

Needed to add another box to each hive to keep my bees making honey. If you don't allow them to continue to make honey while the season is in bloom, they will swarm (leave) and find somewhere else to do their honey business. Cleaned up a few boxes I got from another bee keeper (scraped, bleached, and re-painted) to add one more box to each hive.

After opening the hive, this is what it looks like:

And this is what the hive sounds like: Quite loud :)Production is doing well, when they have to make comb and honey, it takes them a bit longer. I am going to try to only take the cap off the honey when I go to extract it so next year, they will spend most of their time making honey instead of both.
