These bees are not doing well…. Maybe this hive can be a one of my test hives of see if I can move them into a different kind of hive. At the present they are in a 重箱式（じゅうばこしき Jubbako Shiki） “Traditional Japanese nested box style hive” which generally works well for Japanese honeybees.
I did get some beautiful photos though.
