3 weeks into my first package. Last week I added a second deep as the girls had built out 7 of the 9 frames in the first box and they were 1/3 of the way on the last 2 frames. I went in today just to feed, they seem to be slowing down quite a bit on feeding with so much in bloom right now.
You was too early to give a second box.
The colony has declining number of bees before new bees start to emerge. It happends after 4 weeks.
First box has still 22% not drawn. it is almost 1/4!!
The colony cannot cover 2 box because it was not able to cover one box.
I would take away the second box and I would wait that new bees have filled the first box.
