Expanding hives in Door County

Finally had the opportunity to drive up to Door County to add hive bodies to the group!  They were in desperate need of expansion.  Opening the hives, they were packed with bees and honey! They finally have the opportunity to grow and I plan on adding supers to the hives in a week.

The hives were overflowing with bees and honey!

The two-story upgrade!  

Healthy bees enjoying the Door County cherry trees!
Spent the day making more hive bodies to be added to the Steinthal bees tomorrow.
