June 7th  – Peter Reader

Hive 3

Double brood box. Top brood box 7 frames largely eggs & larvae and bottom brood box 8 frames largely capped brood.  One sac brood cell in evidence. A fair amount of chalkbrood on the floor but not on frames.  Three supers partially full and 4th full super placed above crown board with porter escapes for extraction. An overall nice colony that will be at full tilt with foragers mid-July onwards for (hopefully) peak nectar flow.
