I have three hives which are very very busy even at this time of the year, they all feral Carnolian queens.
There no problem with bee production, they are going gain busters there, in fact their is nearly always a cluster of bees hanging out at the entrance (lazy so and so's).
Heres the problem, they produce plenty of propolis, lots of bees but not a lot of wax or honey???
All other other hives in the same area are filling up nicely but not these?
What are your suggestions? Re-queen? there is no shortage of bees they just seem very lazy?
