Bee Inspection

We checked on our bees for the first time this week.  They have been very busy.  They had drawn comb on all but one side of one frame.  There was a nice mix of brood, pollen, and honey.  Luckily neither of us got stung even though they were very active (probably due to the late hour of our inspection).  We have a few sugar ants coming in the hive so we will have to watch that closely.  We changed the entrance reducer to the larger entry and the bees took a little while to realize where the entrance was because they were used to going to the right side and the entry was changed to the left of the hive.
