Reply Trish July 21, 2020 at 2:26 am Really interesting that the bees do finally realize that they have more room for the honey. I like that gathering the honey doesn’t place a lot of stress on the bees. Reply Gary F. Bengier July 21, 2020 at 6:04 am No, it doesn’t stress them, unless, I might guess, if their honey is taken at the end of the year before winter, and they don’t have enough stores. That’s the reason for leaving them plenty – maybe 30+ lbs. – and then checking if any colony has an abundance, to spread it around more evenly if necessary.
