Here is a photo Kathy took today of the bearding that has been going on almost daily on the original hive. It is very full of bees. I have opened to the middle opening and have raised the outer cover fairly high, so they should be getting some ventilation and I have also added the super since they had drawn out most of the frames in the 3rd hive body. They should have enough space but there is a ton of honey and nectar in the hive and it must be very warm and humid in there. Don't blame them for hanging out on the porch.
