I will inspect this hive again in 2 days and have a closer look for damage.
Less than ideal conditions today with it overcast and building up to a storm. I did pull 4 frames from the brood box, located the queen, good solid pattern of capped brood and didn't see any obvious damage. Would have liked to keep going but when the first big fat rain drop landed I closed it up as quickly as I could,
This hive I picked up a bit over 3 weeks ago, was 10 deep with a full super The owner was down sizing to less hives so we put it into a 8. 4 frames of eggs, larvae and brood a couple of mixed frames, a frame of honey and a empty frame, shook in a few frames of bees. It has been quite aggressive since, I have been making sure conditions have been ideal each week when I have inspected it. I have been as gentle and careful as I could but would still have a swarm of bees around my veil head butting within 30sec and a dozen or more stings in my gloves by the time I finished. Today they were quite calm, only had one decide to head butt and no stings. I am hoping it is a sign the wax moth larvae might have been what was upsetting them and they now have them under control.
