Getting ready for the weather ahead...

A much needed day off gave me time to get caught up around here. Some knee issues have side lined me and put me behind on much needed things around here.
A Drone looked very scared as he hid away from the worker girls. As I inspected today there were still some lucky boys left in the hives, but most have been evicted from their hives.

I fired up the smoker but with a misty day in Connecticut, it was hard to keep it going.

All the Queen reducers were removed...

As well as the Supers. 

The entrance reducers were changed to the smaller opening. A lot of pressure is on the hives because of yellow jackets. This will help the Guard bees do their jobs with a lot less pressure.

These two had a stand off and both lost

This year we are trying something new, a Hive body and a Medium. So all the girls are still bringing in some food. The best I can hope is for them to do their best to get ready for the long winter ahead.
