Hive 1 - most beautiful hive I've seen. Overflowing with brood and honey (none in super but everywhere else) - I have 2 full hive body boxes on this one with a medium in the middle. I think putting that medium in the middle made all the difference when this hive was growing strong
Hive 2 - sad little hive. They didn't seem to do anything with the mite treatment so I didn't open all the frames yet, but will call Hudson Bee Supply on Tuesday for their advice. Not much of anything going on with this hive and I have little hope for them for the winter.
