This afternoon we suited up and opened up our hive for the first time. We checked the honey production, scraped off wax where it didnt belong, and moved some frames around. The second frame I pulled out was covered in capped honey. Positively beautiful. Then I dropped it! Yah..... sigh. The bees got a tad aggressive after that, several guards going for our faces and wiling to follow us as far as 50ft. But, no stings! We added a bit more smoke and things calmed down fast. We managed to do all the maintenance needed. All in all it went well. Hooray!
