The bottom hive box on my Warre (got it from Beethinking) looked like it was full of bees and probably comb 3 days ago when I looked through the window. The hive has 4 boxes and I know that the top one and box 3 have comb. I haven’t looked at box 2 as it’s propolized. The only box with a window is the bottom one.
This morning I unblocked the window on the bottom box and looked in to find it empty but could see the 2nd box was full of bees and I saw some comb. I would have bet the bottom box was full of bees when I saw the wall of bees the first time I checked. It had to be an inside beard or if anyone has any other ideas I’d like to know. Maybe they were cooling the hive since it was in the low 90’s that day. I’ve seen minimal bearding on the outside. It was 58 degrees this am.
Has anyone seen a beard on the inside of a hive box? This hive is so pretty it makes my husbands Langstroth’s look pitiful! I’ll include a photo on future posting. This hive is awesome!
Being a Newbie to the Warre I appreciate any comments or info from the forum.
