My bottom brood box has the side windows for observation. I inspect through the windows at least every other day. As this box is nearly fully drawn with comb I can now only see the outside frames next to the window. One of these outside frames was at one point almost entirely full of capped honey. Now that capped honey is gone and the cells have brood and capped brood.
My question. Did my bees eat that honey? It is midsummer here in Kansas City with a good ongoing nectar Flow. I thought capped honey was stored away for later in the year and for Winter time when there was no nectar source for the bees. Why would they consume capped honey in midsummer? I did add a second brood box on top of the first. Did they move the honey upstairs?
