dubble deep brood boxes (top 90% drawn out!) and feeding 1-1
« on: September 08, 2012, 01:05:49 PM »
i have some hives that where packages in the spring and i stopped feeding late summer but i noticed that the top brood box has 2 end frames that are not drawled out. i will start feeding them today at a ratio of 1 to 1 . will that will that help them make comb or should i go to 2-1 ratio?

Move the outer frames in a space or two so they will draw them out.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

All we feed here in FL is 1:1 but up by you most feed 2:1 at this time of year to encourage storage. If you have a fall flow going now you can wait a bit I would think but get local advice on this.
