So I don’t want them to keep filling up the flow frames. So after my harvest a few weeks ago, I moved them on top of the inner cover. They still filled the frames, so I took that honey off to feed back to them, and made the inner cover hole smaller so they would think that it was outside the hive and just clean the frames and then I could remove them. Today when I looked they didn’t seem to be cleaning off the frames or if they were it was going slowly. As I think back on it it was probably a wash. I think there was some new nectar there, as well as some that had disappeared. So today I shook them out of the flow frame box and set the box in front of the Hive. I had not wanted to do this as I’m told it increases Robbing.
And go. Right? Wrong? Good? Bad? I know there are million opinions I would like some more than my own.
They were three boxes in total including flowbox. Have I just jammed three boxes of bees into two and now force them to swarm? My local beek my local beak tells me that I want to boxes to overwinter. tells me that I want to boxes to overwinter.
