Our bees have been very slow to start in the flow box. We don’t want to remove the flow box and take away their small honey stores as they may want them during the cold weather. And do we have to remove the queen excluder?
Is it all right to leave the flow box on top of the 8 frame brood box for the winter?
The brood box is full of honey but we may have to feed them fondant if the winter is long.
We are near St. Pancras in central London.
We welcome your advice. We were early contributors but the flow frame took a while to arrive.
