It looks like a Hornet Mimic Hover Fly. It's friendly and good for your garden. πŸŒ»πŸƒπŸπŸƒπŸŒ»

'At the Hive Entrance' is a super book, by H Storch, as you say, you can learn so much from observing the entrance...the book goes through all the external signs of the wonderful internal 'goings on' in the hive, free download too!

I read the last night on the train. A perfect read to pick up, put down, read again, refer back to, lose your place and start again! πŸŒ»πŸƒπŸπŸƒπŸŒ»πŸƒπŸπŸƒπŸŒ»

I'd be tempted to open a couple. Could the temperature soften the honey enough to run back and discolour the capping?

From the picture. Are you more concerned about the irregular outline, than cell colour?

Did you see any eggs? Does the queen have space to lay? If you feed them before they need it, they may fill the cells before the queen can lay in them.

I'd be inclined to agree with treating only if you need to, and not just because. We've had pollen in feeder eke's and will be putting syrup on in September. Think of the winter foragers's either being in capped brood now, or not yet laid, and those in the hive now being tired.

Has the queen been laying eggs between cells they've backfilled?
