Beekeeping is Super!

The main hive is buzzing along nicely.  Two medium supers are full of honey.  I put a third medium super on it today.  I am going to call Maxant Monday and order an extractor.  I hope things keep going this well.

On the other hand, I looked in the split and saw a lot of drone cells.  I guess I have a laying worker.  After I extract the honey supers from the main hive, I'll probably pull a frame or two of eggs and put into the split to see if they'll make a queen.  It would be too much work to remove all the supers to get into the brood boxes at this point in time.
