Having extracted a week or so ago I put the flow super on top of a crownboard above a regular super for the bees to rob out and keep the remainder as stores.
Checking today, they have cleaned out a lot of the open cells but not touched the capped cells.
Thinking this was an opportunity to see the frames in action outside the hive, I removed a frame, supported it in my kitchen and used the flow key to open the frames.
The frames are cracked open - you can see in the cells that arent capped that it’s open, and the cells toward the bottom are deformed so it’s definitely open. Nothing is coming out though.
Thought it might be a temperature issue if the honey was particularly thick, so they’re now in my conservatory (super hot in there - probably 30+C ). No flow.
Question’s are - why is the honey not flowing, and what do I do now?
(NB - The honey is not crystallised, but is quite thick)
(PS - I have a video I’ll try and upload showing the open, not flowing frames)
