Hi all, this is my second year beekeeping and we appear to finally be getting a lot of nectar, very exciting! From what I have read online about my area (NC Piedmont), my flow is over by 7/4 and folks extract on or around the fourth. Here is my conundrum:
I still see a lot of clover, dandelion and a ton of other flowers on my property. That plus the fact that there appears to be a massive number of foragers coming and going leads me to believe there is still plenty of nectar!?!?
I would say half my hives have a full super of nectar (deeps, above excluder) but only a couple of frames are fully or even partially capped.
So, my question is, when do I give up on the uncapped frames, there are so many and they seem to be getting ready to be capped. Any advice?
