Beehive Inspection with Shannon Beekeeper Mentee | LDS Prepper

http://youtu.be/qseYZ0Fg22Y

I do a beehive inspection with Shannon, my mentee from the Montgomery county beekeepers association. She purchased a nuc (starter colony) this Spring and after caring and feeding it for the last several months feels it is time to add a second brood box. We discover this hive is almost honey bound and needs more room. She expands the hive and puts the top feeder back on to help the bees to pull new comb.
