Hive News: 
On the sugar roll today this hive had one frame with 0 and the other with 4. Should be ok, hopefully for the rest of the season. This hive also had the fewest hive beetles. They were very aggressive today, more so than Cheese Palace, which surprised me.

Hopefully the final winter check today. Rhinelander bees have stored a good bit of honey. Top medium is mostly full, with the exception of the two eastern most frames. The top brood chamber was quite weighty implying it had quite a bit of honey in it. I would have taken frames out but the bees got very defensive as soon as I went into the top deep. It very quickly smelled very strongly of bananas and everyone got quite ornery so I just reassembled the hive and did other chores.
