2016 10 02 Spring Checkup

First chance to check on the girls this season, only got to the ones by the billabong.
Metropolis (3 boxes) is 3/4 full, could have taken a few frames for spinning. Saw about 12 small hive beetles in there. Very healthy, very strong. Put he queen excluder back in, hope the queen is in the bottom box, coulnd see her. Changed one super over, need to change the bottom over too, it is getting rotten.
Other (2 boxes) is not so strong, some old mildew and a few pests, spotted some Small Hive beetlle in there too.
Probably should re-queen both.
