three story hive

I added another super today. I also looked at the beetle trap. No beetles. I also looked at the grid board, no Varroa mites either. Yea!

To answer Carla's question from the last post. A capped cell is where the bees seal or cap a cell in the comb. In the honey super it means ripe honey. In the brood super it means a larva is pupateing. A super is a box with four sides, no top or bottom that hold the frames of comb.


  1. Thanks for explaining that all to me the other day. I really find it interesting.
