Well I checked my two hives today and one has 2 shallow supers full of capped honey. Not bad considering I just got them as a new pkg this spring. The other hive always was slower but is getting there.

sounds great. I've had pretty good luck with packages in the past also.

Beegood,.. this is good and fun!

Today, I have extracted 5 deep supers of 3 hives, [from my stronger 5 hives]
The hives I have wintered over, some with new queens from last years swarm did the best.
Beegood,
Have you tried wintering over?
Where are you located?...I see you're in the same province.

RE: Honey

Yes I have wintered . My last hive (I had only one ) was doing fine till late fall. I fed but began to wonder why the food wasn't being eaten or no bees flying around. I checked and every last one of them had flown off somewheres.This was in late September.So didn't have any bees last year and missed them here I go again. So far so good.I live north of Sherwood Park along the Old Man Creek.That was one nice swarm you got.There are hives down the road from me but I never see a swarm or even hear one.
