Hive Inspection July 4, 2010

The hives at the Harvard Yard are doing well.  That is to say that hive number 3, started from a swarm is a complete loss, but the other two hives, started from packages in April are coming along famously.  We currently have 2 honey supers on each hive.   Accumulated surplus honey is currently estimated to be about 30 or 40 pounds.   We can look forward to a healthy pair of hives come winter time and a bountiful harvest of honey in late August.
