 The unknown beekeeper vacationed in Argentina and got roped into helping a beekeeper there. 


Been 14 weeks near 5 brood cycles. How do they look? How many bees do you see in the hive?  When you open, how many frames are covered with bees.  8 frames? Is when you’ll add another box?   What’s your plan?  Swarm control?   Treatments?
