Just starting out this year with a new Flow Hive and have a few questions that someone in Southern Ontario Canada could hopefully answer?
My first brood box is 90+% full and I’m not sure if I should add another or add the Flow frames. I’d like them to have enough honey to last the winter without being fed.
Also, in the space between the frames where I initially had the queen cage, the bees have built out the comb to the point were the 2 frames are an 1"+ apart with no hope of getting them closer to where they should be. During one week they actually built another separate full size comb in the space!
So should I leave all that extra comb? Every time I try to scrap it down I get a tsunami of honey/nectar running down the frame! But there is so much comb on the 2 frames it’s difficult to find the queen…
Thanks for any help and advice!
