The Old Hive
This is our old hive, the one we got this spring and then split part of them off to form a new hive. They're doing remarkably well this year. We noticed a few mites the last time we checked so we're treating with essential oil grease patties and essential oil syrup. I hope it works because we're not going to use any kind of chemical treatments on our bees. Next year we're hoping to buy a queen from the Ohio Queen Project for a new hive.
