no flow = no comb. they may not need it. what do the stores in the hive look like?
starter strips go at the top of the frame. if you have wax on the frames from cut comb, you probably don't need anything else. they may be on the full foundation sheet because it's kind of like a ladder for them. when they need it, they will build it out.
Kathyp, thanks for your response.
**no flow = no comb
great answer...I did not know that.
I thought they would buildup before a flow.
With dandelions, apple blossoms and such I thought it would be "flow city" but it's my 1st spring so I wasn't sure what to expect.
**starter strips go at the top of the frame.
yes, that's where they are.
**if you have wax on the frames from cut comb, you probably don't need anything else.
cool, that sound great to me I have about 20 more.
**what do the stores in the hive look like?
I haven't been able to check for about 3 weeks.
Their honey was light, plenty pollen, started feeding them but they didn't take much, I stopped when the dandelions popped.
Apparently the weather has not seen my schedule.
Its been real rainy, some nice day's in between but the north wind will not relent.
This week looks good for an inspection 70's by Fri.
I think I may have too many supers...might have jumped the gun on adding that last one.
I'm sure your right they just don't need it yet.
Note to self...learn Patience :-D
Thanks again, great info!
