Honey Harvest and Winter Prep

Today we fired up the smoker, pulled all the tools and supplies we needed...

loaded up the quad and headed to the hives.

As we began to inspect the hives we realized that hive #5 didn't make it but had a lot of honey still in it. Last time I inspected it, it was iffy if the hive had a queen. As we opened the other hives, we saw frame after frame in the honey Supers that looked like this, just loaded with honey.

Just another frame chock full of honey!

After the honey was removed, mite treatments were applied for the winter prep. The feeders were filled...
and the hives are ready for winter. We will be wrapping them this year as well. Next is cleaning up the bee yard!
