Today was a very warm day, which probably explains the wonderful performance of my hobbled-together solar wax melter. All the wax in the picture melted during the course of today only. At the very least, it surprised me at the amount.
Tomorrow, I will be checking the supers I put on the hives last week to determine if I need to put another set on. I hope that is the case as that would mean the bees are on a good nectar flow. Also, I will get a chance to check out the hives during the day. I am normally at work and only get to check on the hives at the tail end of the day instead of during the peak of foraging.
