Checking On The Bees

Checked two hives today.
This is the giant swarm from October. They still have lots of room for expansion. The bees are building comb in the top super, but it will be a while before these frames are full. Compare that with the original hive that they swarmed from:
That's a frame almost completely full of capped honey. It's time to do some extraction of this one!
