Growing local

A bit of a light hearted "behind the scenes" look at a couple of hive splits that I did for some friends. Please note: this is not a "how to video."

Yes, except they don't make honey comb as such Susan - they make bigger honey pots where they store the honey separately.  The honey pots were what you could see around the edge of the brood.  Any big yellow spots are normally pollen stores.  I should have removed all of the honey pots in the bottom because the bees can drown in it.

What an awesome video. Is the neat honey comb in the centre the brood? This was fascinating - thanks for posting.
