The Honey is Flowing in NC

Sunday July 11, 2010 and the honey flow has started and seems to be strong…one of my weaker hives appeared to be being robbed yesterday by some larger drone bees that were of a different color from my bees..I reduced the entrance and i hope that will solve the problem..ive included some pictures for you all to see..
