Bald faced hornets and lots and lots of yellow jackets.  Nairobi has no honey stored and the girls are evacuating a ton of dead bees from the bottom of the hive.  I corked the second of three holes on the KTBH and put entrance reducers on the two Langstroths.  I will start feeding 2:1 sugar to water this weekend through the rest of the fall.

Many yellow jackets have felt the wrath of my hive tool.  The little bastards were even killing bees at the waterer I have set up on the porch.  I killed one nest earlier in the summer that was trying to establish in the railrod tie retaining wall.  Stupid wasps.
