Bee Activity

I noticed a lot of activity around one of my beehives today - they were swarming all around the hive and crawling over the brood chamber. I posted some footage on youtube which you can see below:

A couple of hours later I decided to give the bees some sugar water, since they had consumed the last amount that I had given them two weeks ago. I gave each beehive about a kilogram of sugar and 1.5 litres of water in a feeder frame.

I quickly inspected some of the new frames of foundation I had put into the beehive and was pleased to discover that the queen had already started laying eggs in them.
