Did my first full inspection today, thinking I would merely check and assess build up. However some colonies were on 7, 8, 9, even 10 frames of brood – in March!!? Crazy! So a quick dash home, supers hastily gathered and put on said hives (thought I could do this in a few weeks and still be early ). Good old bees don’t work to rule you know.
