Summer splits (part 3), and more about Martha

New nucs are all taking syrup. Reasonable bee traffic at the entrances.

A peek into nuc #1. The outer frames are still empty.

Marked queen in nuc #1 - nice!

Nuc #2. More bees here. Nuc #3 looked about the same.

Ex-feral hive (“Martha”) seems to be hanging in there. I partitioned off the hive with some plastic sign material. Best to give the bees just the room they need and no more.
