I went through 5 hives this afternoon,after going through 2 hives I stopped for a can of fizzy drink.

10 minutes later and after drying my face with a towel I inspected the other 3 hives,I then stopped for another drink only to find I had left an empty can in the car door compartment yesterday :toetap05:

I decided It was time for home as I was soaking and dehydrated.

5 Hives inspected,Not exactly bee farmer stuff is it :svengo:

I average about 5 minutes but the first hive queen needed clipping and marking.

The second hive is on brood and a half with 4 supers above the QE,I took a little longer as I am determined they are not going to swarm on me as I am after 100lb from this hive(no queen cells found).
