Yes stop worrying about drawing comb right now.  They WON'T do it.  

Is the goldenrod flow over in NJ?  

Remove any excess UN drawn or emp[ty frames and begin feeding so bees will fill every available cell around broodnest.....OR.....if you have a lot of empties (drawn comb) fill them them (use a small paint brush) with thick syrup and put them back into your hives.  

Your bees will LOVE you for it  Smiley

The days are getting shorter & cooler, the bees need to get the syrup cured and capped. Feed em the heaviest syrup that you can cook up.
