This is my first year at beekeeping, I have two hives, the one hive is doing great but I have a problem with the second one.
I have been checking them once per week. They had the bottom two deep hives almost full a month ago so I put the queen excluder on and placed a super
on each set of deeps. The one hive began filling the super with honey but the other hive were not building honey in the super, there were
bees in it but they would not start making comb. I had a different new super so I place that on it last week, I check the hive today
and there were hardly any bees in it. The bottom two deeps were full of honey, capped honey, larva and capped larva.
What went wrong, have I lost the hive for the year? Is there anyway to get it going again? Any advice on what I should do
next would be greatly appreciated.
