Hop Guard Added and Hive Bodies Condensed.

Broke down the remaining 3 hives. The hive on the old top bar hive had a large hatch and the queen was apparently waiting for an area to lay in. Hive beetles were everywhere in the hive. I reminded one box and consolidated the brood into one deep and a medium. I added hopguard and closed things up.

The next hive was going well. The bottom box was empty of brood or Honey. This box its now on to. Hop guard was added.

The last hive is struggling. Only one box was left on the hive when I was done. Hopguard was added. Queen is laying, but not well. She is going on 3 years old and needs replaced.
