What happens When in a Honey Bee Hive?

The next layer down in the hive is full of activity

Adding a new layer or super to a hive is done as a part of the growth of the hive. A healthy hive will grow and if they fill it up, they may decide its time to go...Or many of them will...Always mysterious to figure them out. We watch the Hive closely and when the last two outer frames are being laid in a Super, its time to add a layer to the hive.

This process works the same in both the 8 Frame & 5 Frame Hives we use. These photos were taken during the Time Lapse I posted previously
