One of my buddies has a Styrofoam hive with the black plastic frames. He added his second brood box on the hive about 3 weeks ago.
The initial brood box is fine and everything seems normal. It full of comb, with both brood and honey. But .......
The second brood box (same construction at the initial brood box) has problems. The bees preferred to build burr comb between the frames and not on the frames. When inspecting the hive, he was forced to pull out several frames at a time, in order the inspect the hive. The burr comb goes from the top of the frames to the bottom. It is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide and filled with brood. The frames themselves are completely empty and have no comb buildup whatsoever. It seems odd, given what the bees did with the initial brood box.
Any suggestions on what should be done?
