I was checking supers today and nothing appeared out of the ordinary until I pulled a top off of a hive, discovered the frames upside down and some bees looking up at me with frowns on their faces. How did I put a super on that way is beyond me, why did I not feel the handholds missing by touch is another thing that escapes me, turns out the bees glued everything just to get back at me for being stupid.  rolleyes
I suppose there's a first time for everything  embarassed

The super was in use last year, so the frames were all drawn out and glued in by the bees, so as I " Gently " added the super to the hive I was probably distracted, eventually they slid down during the week or so.  Undecided

So this is one you took out of storage and put on. I was thinking you had taken it off during the inspection and some how turned it over the last time you were in the hive.

Did the bees do anything to it? Start filling it or tear it down to make it right?

There was some open nectar/honey on 2 end frames, they did not look too busy in the super, but they sure as hell did a good job propolizing the frames whose top bars were back to back  angry

If you invert the honey, does that mean that it is turned back into sucrose?  rolleyes
