I equipped my flow hive with bees in November.
I opened up my hive today for an inspection. When I look at the flow frames, only a couple of them are being used, and they are only about 1/4 capped. I can see where the bees have sealed the gaps in the cells on preparation of accepting the honey, but they are not being used. The bees are healthy and very active, and we have just gone through summer and into Autumn so I thought that there would be better results than this.
When i look at the frames in the brood box, they are bursting with honey! It is almost as if the bees don’t want to use the flow frames.
Anyone else experiencing this?
