    not drawing out honey super

    I added my honey super on my hive after they filled two deeps. The first week I had the honey super on top, but the bees didn't do anything with it, so I moved it to the bottom, hoping they would use...

    Ants...

    What do people do about ants?
    I tried putting my hive up on a table, and wrapping the legs with bug tape, but the ants just build dead body-bridges and keep robbing. Now I have the legs in coffee...

    love the bees you have, not the bees you want
