Winter feed

Four pounds of sugar in thick syrup for each hive, for 12 pounds total. 3 x $2.09.

Peeked in the hives, and saw no brood in the upper body. I think we are ready for winter.

Harvest from the Josephium, and Feed

We pulled a super off of the Josephium and got some more dark red honey from it. I also put 4 pounds of sugar each on the Benedictium and the Ambrosium in the form of thick syrup. $4.62.

I had put on the bee escape last week, and there were no bees in the super. Plenty of sugar ants, though, and one small hive beetle.

I'll let the thing settle over night, and bottle tomorrow.
