    Re: New Hive/ bees not drawing comb

    A quart a week is not enough. What is your method of feeding? Get a top feeder that lets a gazillion bees feed at once if you want comb drawn. I have a hive taking 2 gallons every 3 days and they...

    Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"

    Flow Hive recommends using a queen excluder between the brood nest and the honey box. They've had queens go up and lay drones in the flow frames.
