A beautiful sunny day here in Kapiti today so had the first look at the hives since I picked them up at the end of July.
Still have plenty of honey, uncapped and capped brood, pollen coming in as well.
I did have concern with top boxes being attached to bottom frames, but got that sorted. No sign of V or AFB to my untrained eye, but will keep checking.
What I did find from where the top and bottom frames where waxed together where these darlings, the first lot I just scraped off butnoticed a lot of white Jelly? So I left the 2nd one on the frame as I noticed the bees were all over it...repairing perhaps. Is this just a normal larvae or have I upset something else. I left the hive alone until I could get some advice.
Cheers

Just a note @NZDan that the peer to peer forums mean you will only get a response from other beginners. So you may prefer to ask a question where you want help from others with a different experience level, in one of these forums
