Can someone please give some advice?
New 5 frame Nuc added to 8 frame brood box in mid-April in an urban, Texas, USA location
Entrance feeder with supplement.
Filled all 8 frames 100% with Brood, pollen, nectar and capped honey
Added 2nd Brood Box in 3rd week of May.
Filled 6 frames 100% with capped honey, (2 outside frames left to draw naturally were 70% drawn and 50% capped honey). So many bees!
Added Flow Super in 2nd week June. Frames were scrapped in places with wax from the brood boxes.
Removed entrance feeder.
The bees entered the Flow Super and cleaned the wax.
Many, many bees in Super, in the cells, and walking about. Bees returning from foraging with pollen. No problems observed.
4 weeks later upon an inspection no honey in any of the Flow Super frames. The 2nd Brood box is 100% capped honey. Both boxes and the super are covered in bees.
Why are the bees not storing in the Flow Super?
Should we remove frames of capped honey in 2nd brood box?
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
