Three top bar Hives doing well

Population seems high and undiminished and sugar syrup is being fed at a rate of about 700ml per day per colony. The feed jars are being emptied in 24 hours so they could probably consume at an even higher rate. Wasps are showing up in growing numbers. I was stung on the hand while walking away, having only just removed my marigold gloves. The empty hive washed down and sterilized with hydrogen peroxide at 2%. This short video taken 18th August.
