Did you have a good honey flow on ?
If not was you feeding ?
Hi Jim - We had lots of goldenrod. Now we have a lot of little white asters and a lot of eupatorium. I'm also feeding 1:1 syrup since this is the first year. They finally figured it out.
I would put a few medium frames into your deep between drawn combs. The bees will start building from the top of these frames and once they have started you can then move them back into your medium super.
Thanks Johnny - that's exactly what we did and it worked like a charm. Much better than doing the cut out. [Though the cut out was better than nothing.]
