Mite Control and Busy Bees

Carl Noot and Dad helping me with the bees.  We added two Hopguard strips into each of the deep hives.  We will do the same thing for the next two weeks.  Carl and his family were up for the weekend and helped us out.
Carl, Dad, and me putting hopguard strips in.

Adding two more supers.

Added supers and strapped down the hive.
After we added two more supers the hive was getting really tall.  Dad strapped down the hive in case a storm comes through.  We will probably start collecting the honey in the next few weeks.
